Delighted to Congratulate The 'What? Why? Children in Hospital' Charity

August 2017

This week the Scottish charity What? Why? Children in Hospital (WWCIH) reached a major milestone: their YouTube videos reached 1 million views! In February 2015, with the help of friends, Marit Boot founded the ’What? Why? Children in Hospital’ charity to make child-friendly videos about hospital tests. The videos are very popular with children and parents searching for information on YouTube and doctors across the UK recommend them to patients.

Within 2 years of founding the charity, Marit developed 32 videos, showing step by step what happens in tests such as MRI, CT, Echo, ECG, EEG, breathing tests and allergy tests. The charity also makes videos with play ideas to prepare young children for hospital.

Dr Iain Horrocks, Consultant Paediatric Neurologist, Royal Hospital for Children Glasgow said: ‘These videos are a fantastic resource for families and children to have access to; it will be invaluable in preparation for the kinds of tests that we need to do.’
