Each ward at Evelina London has a play area, which provides a range of age appropriate toys, books and activities. There is usually a game console and DVD players.  

We also have a number of specialist play facilities at Evelina London, including: 

  • a multi-sensory room
  • a multi-sensory unit that can be brought to the bedside
  • holiday arts and craft club. 

There is at least one play specialist on each floor. Ask the nurse caring for your child about how you can access their services.
