Teddy Bear Hospital Keele is part of a nationwide scheme teaching primary school children all about health and lifestyle. We are made up of volunteers from a variety of healthcare courses including medicine, pharmacy, physiotherapy, nursing and more. On Wednesdays we travel to different primary schools in Stoke on Trent and our volunteers run stations teaching the pupils in small groups. The children all bring in their Teddies to help them learn about topics including operations, dentists, mental health and healthy eating to name a few. Due to the nature of our work, we need all of our volunteers to have a DBS check. Any hours that you spend with us on a visit with us can also contribute to your HEAR record. If you'd like to find out any more please get in touch!
September 2021 COVID Update: We are delighted to announce that school visits will now be run in person again on Wednesday afternoons! We look forward to seeing as many of you possible at the Freshers Fair! Any PPE/anti-bac wipes which are required will be provided!
