The Teddy Bear's Hospital is back for the ninth year! This is a free venture organised by students of Otago University Medical School. The philosophy behind this event it create a positive experience with health professionals for children.
For kids, visiting the doctor usually occurs when they are sick or requiring childhood immunisations, and this has the power to create very unpleasant memories for the child, and also often for their caregiver. We want to help you by relieving some of that anxiety and fear- by showing how much fun hospitals can be.
This year we are pleased to announce that we will also be providing consultations with 'Teddy Dentists'!!! The Doctors and Dentists will be providing free consultations - showing the kids how to take Teddy's temperature, listen to his 'heartbeat' and give them that terrifying injection.
New this year! This South Dunedin Community Day is an exciting new event for us this year and is running parallel with the North Dunedin Community Day! This Community Day will also be running on Saturday 15th May, 10 am-4 pm, however, bookings are not required for this event! There will be a sausage sizzle, tea and coffee space for parents, obstacle course with Sport Otago and much much more!
