Teddy Bear Hospital

TBH-LogoTeddy Bear Hospital is a medical student volunteer-run public health venture in association with the Oxford Society of Paediatrics.

We aim to improve children’s understanding of health and healthcare through a series of games and workshops in local schools with the aim to familiarise children with the equipment and processes of seeing a medical professional and to discuss important healthy living themes. We run workshops in local primary schools and teach 4-7 year olds about healthy living, exercise and diet and what it’s like to go to the doctor by through a series of games and a make-believe GP surgery, where children act as parents and bring their teddies with a illness to be sorted. We also give the children a chance to experiment and play with routine medical equipment such as stethoscopes.

We visit schools once every few weeks. Each session takes either a morning or afternoon of your time. If you are up for a laugh, are energetic and enthusiastic and would like to get involved or know more, please join our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1449299081951530 or email teddybearhospitaloxford@gmail.com
