Sharing your story of Edinburgh Children’s Hospital can help to reassure brave children and their families about what to expect from a hospital visit or stay.
It can give hope and comfort to those going through a similar journey when they need it most and help them to understand more about a particular condition or treatment.
Raising awareness by sharing stories of those who have been supported by our charity also helps to raise vital funds and shows others the positive impact their donations to ECHC can have.
If you or your child has received care at Edinburgh Children’s Hospital, St John’s Hospital or any children’s healthcare settings across the East of Scotland, we would love to hear from you.
