The Cookie Jar Foundation has been invited by the Royal Hospital for Sick Children Friends Foundation to work in partnership with them and other notable charities in raising additional funds for interactive equipment and furnishings in specific areas of the new hospital which is scheduled to open in the autumn of 2017.
This £150 million project will redevelop services from the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and the Department of Clinical Neurosciences in a single building adjoining the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh at Little France.
The new co-located building will see services from the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Department of Clinical Neurosciences and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service brought together in a modern and high-quality setting at Little France.
Construction works started in February 2015 and the new building, which will adjoin the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh via adult and children Emergency Departments, is anticipated to open in autumn 2017.
It will also bring with it an increase in single rooms with ensuite facilities and a range of new technology. This project will see a combined building constructed next to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, bringing paediatric care, specialist neonatal care, neurosciences and adult and children’s emergency departments together on one site.
