Resources for children

A Southampton intensive care nurse has created a book to help reduce anxiety in children caused by the Coronavirus outbreak.

The free online publication, entitled Dave the Dog is worried about coronavirus, has already been downloaded 15,000 times and has received plenty of positive feedback.
The book was written by Molly Watts, a staff nurse on the paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) at Southampton Children’s Hospital, who penned it after a nightshift.
