This website is aimed at 8-12year olds and was developed by Heart Children and Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin.
The aim of the website is to prepare you and your parents/guardians for the time you may have to spend in Our Lady's Hospital for Children, Crumlin while the doctors, nurses and all the other people in the hospital look after you. You will also have the chance to look at the site while you are in hospital with the Play Specialist on St. Brigid's Ward.
As you explore the site you will learn all about Crumlin Hospital, where everything is in the hospital and in St. Brigid's Ward, who are the people who will be looking after you and what are the things they will be using to help you feel better. You will also learn about what life is like in hospital, we'll tell you about some of the procedures, tests and operations you might have to go through and you will also learn all about your heart and how it works. At the end we will test you out with a little quiz to make sure you were paying attention.
After you've clicked through the site please let us know what you think and how we could improve it. Also you can send us your story about your time in hospital and if you're lucky it could be chosen to be put up on the site.
If you have any questions about the website email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Heart Children Ireland on 01 8740990. If you need medical advice please contact the cardiac department at the hospital on (01) 4096100.
