TONI & GUY WARD AT KING’S COLLEGE HOSPITAL
In 2013 Toni Mascolo and the Toni & Guy Charitable Foundation donated £700,000 to renovate a children’s ward at King’s College Hospital in south east London. Since then, thousands of sick children and their families have been treated and cared for on the state of the art Toni & Guy ward.
ABOUT THE WARD
Toni & Guy is a children’s inpatient ward with 15 beds located in the Variety Children’s Hospital at King’s. The children’s hospital cares for around 50,000 young patients per year. Most of the patients treated on Toni & Guy ward are aged from birth to 16, but young people who need ongoing specialist care can return to the ward until they are 18-21. Most patients are on the ward for at least a week, and some can need inpatient care for many months. Staff on Toni & Guy specialise in caring for children with cancer, respiratory and blood conditions. Staff on Toni & Guy ward specialise in caring for children with cancer, respiratory and blood conditions. Last year, 1,260 children were treated on Toni & Guy ward.
Toni & Guy ward has a large and well equipped play area where specialist workers support young patients by helping them to understand their illness and treatment through therapeutic play. They also organise activities in the play area and help children and their families to have the best possible experience during their hospital stay.
Parents can visit the ward at any time and there are facilities for one parent to stay overnight with their child. There is also a parents’ room, a calm, relaxing and non-clinical space where parents can go to take a break, make something to eat and drink, watch tv and meet other families with children on the ward. Having a sick child in hospital is a stressful and frightening experience, and having a quiet space to meet other parents in the same situation can provide valuable support and reassurance.
