PARENTS preparing their child for an upcoming hospital visit can now tap into a brand new information resource created for The Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, Brighton, by a Lewes company.
The new website includes a comprehensive guide to all the departments and the services offered at The Alex, profiles of doctors and key staff within the hospital and key practical information such as public transport details, visiting times and much more.
The Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, affectionately known as ‘The Alex’, is a leading, state-of-the-art hospital for children and young people where patients from throughout the South East are treated.
Rosie Courtney, Operations Manager, Paediatrics and Neonatology, said: “The aim of the new website is to answer the many questions parents may have in the run-up to the hospital appointment. It gives families an idea of what to expect upon their arrival.”
The online photo gallery will be a particularly popular section of the website.
Created by Lewes marketing agency Sans Frontiere Marketing, the website recreates the unique and fun animal design scheme which is present throughout all areas of The Alex. The hospital is set out as a giant arc with each level representing a different habitat complete with its own animals.
Families also have the opportunity to share the stories of their childrens’ bravery and tenacity through their treatment, by contributing to the ‘tell us your story’ section. When nurses and doctors have gone the extra mile to provide exceptional care to a child, they can be given a special mention here.
“As The Alex is a leading hospital in its field, we felt it was important to be able to bring this valuable resource straight into the hands of our patients and their parents in the comfort of their homes. We hope that the patients will engage and embrace the new website and that local GPs will use it as a comprehensive information resource,” Rosie Courtney said.
