Kids & Families

All of us at the Clown Doctors know how scary it can be in hospital, and so we'd like to meet as many of you as possible. You might see us when you're waiting for some treatment, or when you're at a clinic. Sometimes we can be seen wandering down the corridors - this usually means we're lost. If your nurse or play specialist thinks that you might like a visit from us they will give us a ‘referral', which means that they tell us why they think you would like a visit. We will get to hear all about you, including what you like and don't like, and how long you've been in hospital. Then we'll come and see you, if we can find our way!

Send us your stuff!

We are really busy, as we only visit hospitals for three days each week.  We can only see children who have had a referral, to make sure we go where we are most needed.  We're so glad you decided to visit our website, and would love to hear from you.

Have you got a story about the Clown Doctors, or a picture that you'd like to show us? Please send them to our office. If your families would like to chat to us, or to give us some help with the programme, they can telephone us on 0191 384 0728.
