Trust launches pain distraction system fundraiser

  • Comment

South Tees Hospitals Foundation Trust has launched a fundraising drive to buy a 3D sensory pain distraction system for children in its accident and emergency department.

Until 24 December, visitors to a shopping centre in Middlesbrough will be able to sample the 3D technology and make a donation.

A&E paediatric clinical sister Suzanne Griss said: “Distraction therapy will reduce the need for children being admitted to hospital to have a general anesthetic for minor procedures.”
