Christmas 2020

Christmas 2020

Whilst 2020 has been quite a different year, we're confident that here at the children's hospital we can still spread the joy and have a Merry Christmas whilst keeping everyone as safe as possible and still provide the best possible care.

One of the differences is that we are unable to have external visitors this year but our fabulous play team will be providing lots of onsite activities. We will also be creating some virtual entertainment, messages and content which can be accessed by patients and families both inside the hospital and at home. This means that family members who can't visit can still take part in some of the same activities and share the same experiences.

We have lots of exciting and festive things planned. Updates will be coming to this page across December. 

Christmas day

We strive to get patients home for Christmas so that they can spend it at home with their families if they are well enough. Although some children may need to stay in hospital throughout, our dedicated and caring staff will help make Bristol Royal Hospital for Children feel festive and magical on the special day. 

Father Christmas unfortunately cannot visit patients in person this year, but we will be sharing a virtual message with patients and families on Christmas day.

Christmas lunch will be provided at the patient's bedside on Christmas day for patients and the parent/carer with them. Christmas supper will be provided for patients only.
