Our Patients

Every time a child comes to Temple Street a new story begins.

And right now - children are being treated in the Emergency Department, undergoing operations in theatres and recovering in wards.

These children need great care, and it’s thanks to your support and generosity that they have the vital, life-saving equipment they need to get better.

Right now in Temple Street, another child is beginning their fight for life and another incredible story is beginning.

Here you can read some of our patients’ remarkable stories.
