I live in Beddau, just outside LLantrisant, and work as a play leader in my local hospital, The Royal Glamorgan Hospital. I’ve worked on the ward for the past nine years.

My role is to provide the children with distraction and play during their stay in hospital and help make their time on the ward less stressful.

For the past year I’ve been involved with the constipation clinic, introducing play and coping techniques to help children who are admitted to the ward for clear-outs, and those dealing with constipation out in the community. I also rave about the help and resources that ERIC provide!
