Introduction

Approximately 3,000 children and young people receive surgery in Ninewells Hospital every year and currently half of these children/young people receive their surgery in the single paediatric theatre in Ninewells. The other half, approximately 1,500 children/young people receive their treatment in adult environments. Work on a Children's Theatre Suite at Tayside's Children's Hospital began in summer 2019 and the new facility will allow significantly more children to receive their surgery in a dedicated children’s environment.

The bright and spacious facility will provide not only two operating theatres with associated recovery area, but also a welcoming reception/waiting area, several treatment and consultation rooms, a 10-bedded ward area and a discharge lounge.

We are now seeking support from children/young people and their families, as well as members of the public, to assist in helping to choose the artwork theme for the reception/waiting area.

Local artist Suzanne Scott (WhimSicAL LusH) is leading on creating bespoke artwork for dedicated areas of the facility.

The artwork themes created by Suzanne for the facility fall into two concepts; one which focuses on ‘Hills and Woodlands’ and the other draws inspiration from the River Tay and is entitled ‘Riverside’. Both themes include images of local animals and birds as well as the famous Tay whale, the iconic Tay Railway Bridge, river scenes, open green spaces and surrounding hills. 

Your input into this aspect of the project is really important to us. Please help by choosing one of the design themes which will be used in the reception/waiting area.

We would be pleased if you could complete this survey by Friday, 25 June.
 
Thank you.
