What is Teddy Bear Hospital? 

Teddy Bear Hospital is a worldwide charity that aims to educate children on the role of doctors to help alleviate childhood anxieties surrounding medical environments and teach them a little more about their physical and mental health. 

 

What do we do?

Here at UEA we normally run ‘clinics’ at local primary schools and rainbow groups for children 5-7 years old. During these ‘clinics’ we play fun and educational games with the children that cover topics such as healthy eating, the human skeleton, teddy bear surgery, stethoscope making and teddy bear doctors.

The children each bring in their own teddy bear to our events to be seen by the teddy bear doctors. The teddy bear doctors will then prescribe relevant treatments for the teddy bears that include hugs and plasters.

We run our events on Wednesday afternoons and occasionally on Saturday mornings to accommodate rainbow groups. We aim to run up to 10 sessions each year and anyone who joins the society can sign up to any sessions that suit them.
