Social Media Plea Transforms Kids Ward

The children’s A&E area at the Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) in Telford has been transformed into a colourful animal kingdom.

Artists Lesley Palmer and Sam Worthington spent days painting the walls of the waiting and consultation rooms to improve the environment for children.

The waiting room now depicts a farm yard scene and an injection of insects while the consultation room has been turned into a magical underwater tranquil setting.

Paediatric Lead Tracy Fearn said: “They were the most uninspiring and drab looking rooms you could possibly get but thanks to Lesley and Sam they now look superb.

“The room has so much colour and interest. The children really like the improved rooms. It is now a much nicer experience for children coming to A&E.”

Lesley, a teacher from Baschurch, said: “We answered a call on social media to transform the children’s rooms and really enjoyed the challenge. Sam and I have different styles but worked closely together and we are delighted with how the rooms look.”

Sam, who lives in Dawley, near Telford, added: “We had great fun painting the walls and making the rooms a much more enjoyable place for the children.”
