Visiting the ICU - An activity book for children

'Visiting the Intensive Care Unit' is an activity book for children who are visiting a relative in an intensive care unit (ICU). NHS hospitals can order printed copies for their ICU here.

The activity book helps introduce children to ICUs, has activities to help them understand what ICUs do and what they might see when they visit one. They can write about how they feel, and their relative, if they would like to. The book also comes with an information sheet for parents or carers, about ways to support the child during this difficult time.
