Great North Children’s Hospital – Hannah Potter

Case Study 1 – “I worked with two young people (YP5 and YP15) on a Lego project for our YPAG pop up hospital event. YP5 is a long-term dialysis patient and YP15 is diagnosed with Shprintzen Goldberg Syndrome and is a recurring patient. The YPAG wanted a Lego hospital built for their event, so I worked with YP5 over a few sessions to build this, he absolutely loves Lego and really enjoyed being a part of the project. With YP15 we built a Lego hospital from scratch, we chatted about what he thinks should be in a hospital and what he would like young people to know before coming into hospital, we did this over a few sessions and took his Lego to the event and fed back his ideas to YPAG. This is a good example of connecting the research projects focused on young people, to the young people who are currently living this experience.”
