Derriford Hospital's Story

Derriford is the largest hospital in the South West peninsular and a major teaching hospital serving a population of around 450,000 people. The Activity Centre on Woodcock Ward caters for a wide range of children and young people including some with special, complex or additional needs, some of whom are particularly anxious when spending time in hospital.

Variety has decades of experience of providing support and care for children in hospital and recognises how alien an environment a hospital can sometimes be. That’s why Variety, supported by Stonegate Pub Company, funded sensory equipment at Derriford to enable the Play Service to help their young patients and encourage their development and independence.
