Harvey's Gang meets Monkey

Oh what a lovely day, no great day, NO FanTASTIC DAY; 


Monkey had a Harvey's Gang tour. Such a great time. Monkey met Harvey the Ortho "Vision" analyser and saw the blood stored in the Blood Bank. Monkeys Mission

Monkey met the team and saw how samples were received, processed and  results sent out. 
Monkey left us a few of his books which we have shared with our Play Specialists, bless him, thank you.

Then when I returned I was informed that Sheffield and The Royal  Marsden and COVENTRY will start Harvey's Gang tours; SO VERY, VERY exciting.

Harvey's Gang launched in Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust yesterday.

Michael very kindly cut the Harvey's Gang orange ribbon with Harvey's parents Richard and Claire in attendance yesterday.
Michael has received a Kidney from his uncle, and is now much better. He was very inquisitive and enjoyed the Harvey's Gang tour of the laboratory facilities and performed some lab experiments including chromatography and blood grouping on a tile.

Great staff at Southampton, with Richard and Claire, Harvey's Mum and Dad.  

A fantastic day was had by all; THANK YOU, and sorry to disrupt your normal running of your Fab Lab

Harvey's Gang tour helps, Needle phobia for kids.

Just a little feedback for you – the children who visited Southampton labs on their trial  first day were described as ‘bowled over’.
The little girl Emily has an extreme needle phobia and the play team have been struggling to get her to have her samples taken without interventions.  Success of Harvey's Gang tour: (pictures to follow).
YEH. Emily is now asking when she can have her next bloods and bring them to the lab J

We had the same success with Charlotte pictured here after having her samples collected and pointing at Pathology sign.

Picture of Harvey and Malcolm Robinson.

This continually reminds me of why we want to ensure all critically ill children benefit from a Harvey's Gang tour around our laboratories.

I am very excited to help officially launch Harvey's Gang with Harvey's parents, Richard and Claire, in Southampton University Hospitals Trust on 21st January 2016.  watch this space!
