Keeping kids comfy in surgery

State-of-the-art surgical pads are now available in each of the children's theatres at Chelsea Children's Hospital, thanks to the money raised from our summer party in Courtfield Gardens.

Josephine Estilo, Manager of Paedriatric Theatres, says:

"These gel pads keep babies and children warm and comfortable during surgery and prevent the need for staff to apply heavy-duty adhesive monitors to their fragile and delicate skin, which is especially important for very young babies. It's wonderful that we no longer have to use the older-style adhesive pads.”
