If you go down to the woods today... Hundreds bring their fuzzy friends to the Teddy Bear Hospital

Today’s the day the teddy bears have to skip their picnic, and instead head to the teddy bear hospital for their annual visit.

Today’s the day the teddy bears have to skip their picnic, and instead head to the teddy bear hospital for their annual visit.

Medical School students at the University of Limerick hosted their annual Teddy Bear Hospital today with over 400 of Limerick’s primary school children bringing their bears along for a check-up.

Plenty of stethoscopes, needles and bandages were involved, but all for the bears’ health.

The event aims to alleviate childhood anxiety about the medical environment and the professionals that work in it.

The event has been organised by five current Graduate Entry Medical School students who have an interest in pedriatric medicine.
