Boredom busting!

Home Case studies Boredom busting!

Being in hospital often means lots of time spent doing very little. We fund creative specialist Dr Lizzie Burns who brings colour, beauty and entertainment to patients through a wide range of boredom busting activities such as origami and colouring.  Feedback from patients and staff is overwhelmingly positive.

Lizzie recently worked with the Royal College of Pathologists to develop 'Incredible You' a colouring book showing different aspects of anatomy in intricate, minute detail.
