How do I prepare my child for hospital?

This video helps families prepare for hospital by talking about questions like: Should I tell my child in advance they are going to hospital? When do I tell them? How much do I tell them about what is going to happen in hospital? How could I use play to prepare? How can I help my child when they are anxious? What support is available in hospital when my child finds it difficult to have a procedure? This video was developed in partnership with the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.
