Louise Haigh at Sheffield Children's Hospital

I was delighted to visit the new Children’s Centre at the Sheffield Children’s hospital, a £40m extension featuring an on-site pharmacy, a coffee shop and new rooms designed to be more accessible for visiting family. The new ward has won awards for its design and contains artwork by children’s illustrator Quentin Blake.

I also heard about some of the challenges they’re facing as a hospital, particularly in terms of numbers of patients and the waiting times for CAMHS mental health services. They’re looking at options for a dedicated helipad, and have been working with former Sports Minister Richard Caborn to develop a Child Research Unit at the Olympic Legacy Park.
