  • How much does it cost to hold one of your clinics at our school? 
SGUL Teddy Bear Hospital's aim is to alleviate stresses associated with medical environments for all children, therefore we believe our clinics should be open and accessible to all children, regardless of background. Therefore our clinics are free. Although, we do ask for a small donation which allows us to improve our work and pay for transport to and from the schools. 

  • Our school is just outside of your 12 mile radius, will you still attend? 
Please contact us directly, so we can assess the journey time and transport available,  
  • How long do your clinics last? 
Once set up our clinics comprise of 5-7 stations, each lasting around 7 minutes. With an introduction and a certificate handout at the end. In total most of our clinics last in the region of 1-1.5 hours. 
  • Should our students bring their teddies with them to the clinic? 
YES! Definitely, it allows us to work with the children and incorporate something they are able to relate to. (We encourage all schools / clubs to insist on this, however we always carry a few spares for children to borrow!)
  •  Are all your volunteers DBS checked? 
All our volunteers have an up to date DBS check through our university, they have also completed a comprehensive child safeguarding course.
