monkey hospitalIt can be a frightening experience for a child going into hospital, due to illness or serious injury. To educate care-givers, parents and children on how to stay healthy, avoid accidents, and reassure youngsters who have to go to hospital, NHS Explorers has introduced a range of free resource packs, downloads and DVDs.

Aimed at parents, teachers and children, they explain what to do in certain situations. Downloads aimed at primary school children include a healthy eating PDF file, activity templates and PDF scenario cards on injury and illness.

There is also a Monkey Goes to Hospital storybook series. The colourful, fun packs for teachers’ resources include Monkey’s Guide to Healthy Living and NHS Services, which includes a monkey puppet, DVD, stickers, teacher’s lesson plan, a children’s guidebook and a poster.
