Have you got any unwanted toys lying around the house?
Emergency nurses are appealing for donations after a number of toys went missing from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s A&E department.
Staff are asking for help to ensure that the toys remain within the busy department to help entertain and calm future patients.
The department has been stocked with toys and books thanks to donations from businesses and individuals, along with a number of staff members.
Unfortunately, some of them have been reported to have gone missing recently, prompting an appeal from staff for new plastic wipeable toys, books and DVDs.

Divisional director for medicine, Andy Evans said: “We are always astounded by the generosity of people who donate toys and money to support the work of the trust.
“We appreciate that emotions are often running high when parents or carers bring a child to be treated at A&E but we would appeal to everyone to help ensure that there is a suitable stock of toys available for other frightened youngsters who visit the department.”
