FILM ... Harvey's Gang Laboratory Tour

We were asked to make a film for Harvey’s Gang of a laboratory tour, making it more accessible for children and families, so if a child is too poorly to visit the lab, then the tour can come to them.

Monkey and Helen visited Malcolm at Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust along with some amazing children who were Trainee Biomedical Scientists as they had a tour with their families. This research helped to create the content of the film as we used many of the questions that had been asked along the way. Harvey’s Gang Tours now run in over 120 NHS laboratories and help hundreds of children, young people and their families every year.

“The Harvey’s Gang film is really terrific, factual but fun, and makes me smile, and I do hope so many children and young people can benefit from this insight into a laboratory and the testing of their samples, until they themselves can have a tour of their laboratory in person.
I hope the film also takes some of the fear out of blood sample collection.”

Malcolm Robinson, Founder of Harvey’s Gang and Retired Multi Award Winning Chief Biomedical Scientist.

MURAL ... East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust - Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Monkey Mural

QEQM Mural

This beautiful mural for QEQM Paediatric Department was kindly sponsored by Emilia’s Little Heart Charity.

“From the start of the idea of having a mural you have been very supportive.
As we appear to treat so many children who have come on holiday to Margate I wanted the mural to represent our lovely sandy beach, the harbour and all the sights.
I sent some photos to you and in a short time we had a beautiful, colourful , busy mural…The best thing about the mural is that it is unique to us and can be moved anywhere as we had it mounted it on board ..in the very near future we are having a rebuild in our Paediactric Department, so our mural will not be destroyed but just relocated. I am so looking forward to next summer when we welcome visitors again as I plan to hang all things relating to the beach and summer from the ceilings!

I can’t thank Helen and the team at Monkey Wellbeing enough!”
