Louis, patient and narrator: “There are many wards at Great Ormond Street Hospital, each helping children in different ways. My name is Louis and I’m going to show you around Koala Ward."

[Louis in corridor] "Come on, hurry up!”

Louis: “Koala Ward treats children with many conditions, such as epilepsy and brain tumours.

“I’ve been coming here since I was a baby because I have hydrocephalus.

“There are many beds here and the single rooms have their own bathrooms.”


[Louis speaks to Rachel, a student nurse on the ward]

Louis: “What are you doing?”

Rachel: “Hi, I’m Rachel and I’m one of the student nurses on the ward. I’m just watching the screen to make sure all the children are OK.”

Louis: “Is it hard working here as a nurse?”

Rachel: “ No, not at all because we get to work with lovely children and their families and it makes it all worth it.”


[Louis gives a high five to Wilson, Housekeeper on the ward]

Wilson: “Hi Louis.”

Louis: “Hi Wilson.

“That’s Wilson, he sorts the food out in the ward.”

“This (parents beverage bay) is where families can have some peace and quiet and a cup of tea.”

[Louis playing in the playroom]

“I love it in the playroom best of all.
