Two COPARS volunteers usually visit the parents room once a week during the evening to chat with parents, carers and relatives who may wish to take a break from the routines of hospital life. The ward staff kindly inform families of these visits. Everyone is welcome.

Look out for news of visits on the ward notice boads or ask a member of staff on C2.

COPARS are also pleased to recommend the gaps:line telephone help line. Gaps:line is a parent-to-parent support line for parents of children with leukaemia or cancer.

A team of specially trained volunteer parents is available between 8pm and 10pm, 7 days a week. Gaps:line is part of Bryan Gunn’s Leukaemia Appeal | Registered Charity No. 287401
