Children and young people: use your creative skills to design the ‘hospital of the future’ and win a special prize!

We have launched a competition for children and young people to imagine what hospitals of the future might look like. This is an opportunity to get creative and think about how hospitals might look in the future

Will there be more robots caring for people? What kind of new medicine and treatment will be available? Where will the hospital be? What exciting things will doctors and nurses be able to do for patients?

Get your thinking caps on and your pens and paintbrushes at the ready! The two successful entries chosen will win a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of our specialist hospital. You’ll meet our robots, you’ll get a chance to see an operating theatre and dress up in scrubs. You’ll also get a special goodie bag with merch, book vouchers and some other goodies!
