Hello and Welcome to The Clown Doctors

Our Clown Doctors visit sick children in The Great North Children's Hospital and The Freeman Hospital to support them through what can be a traumatic and frightening time. On this website you will be introduced to all of our Clown Doctors, and you can find out which hospitals they go to. You can also find out how to get involved and support us.
