Celebrate 10 Years of Clown Doctors at Lismore Base Hospital
Today, Lismore Base Hospital Children’s Ward celebrateed the Clown Doctors bringing 10 years of laughter and fun into the lives of young children while they are in hospital.

Imagine being a child in hospital, away from the comfort of your home and all that is familiar, feeling sad, confused, frightened and lonely or in pain.

This is where the Clown Doctors can help. They treat children in hospital with medicine of a different kind… doses of fun and laughter.

Clown Doctors address the psychosocial needs of the child in hospital in a unique way. They help children feel less traumatised by medical procedures. They divert children during painful procedures, help calm a distressed child in emergency and encourage children in physiotherapy.

They do this and much more by bringing humour and help them to forget their illness for a moment.
