Entries to Oscar’s Book Prize have been donated to a London hospital that helps children with heart complaints.
Some of the books that were submitted over the last two years have been given to the Royal Brompton Hospital in Chelsea.
They will be enjoyed by children and parents visiting the inherited cardiovascular conditions outpatient clinic. Another batch has gone to the hospital’s Rose Ward which cares for babies and children up to the age of 16 with heart and lung problems.
Dr Sanjay Prasad, consultant in cardiology and cardiovascular magnetic resonance, said: “Coming into hospital can be a daunting experience for young children. The books are an amazing support to help our younger patients when they are seen in clinic. We are enormously grateful.”
Bethan Cowley, clinical nurse specialist in inherited cardiac conditions, added: “We are really pleased that James and Viveka chose to donate these lovely books to our clinics and wards. It is wonderful to see them being enjoyed by our patients.”
