More hands collected for All Hands Together To;

New commission for K2 ward

1 Apr

I have been enjoying working with patients in K2 ward at Alder Hey over the last couple of weeks.

I’m sure we always try to look after our teeth, but since working on this commission I now understand really how important it is for everyone to have healthy teeth, as patients who have problems with their teeth will not be able to have any operations until they are fixed as unhealthy teeth can cause recovery complications post operation!

Over the next month I will be turning all our creations into an artwork collage about ‘healthy teeth’. More to follow….

Being on K2 has also gave me an opportunity to see how a commision from last year; K2’s Noah Ark is working in situ;
