It is available once a week and open to all interested patients on the ward.

The ward is currently being used to care for haemato-oncology patients while there is continued improvement work at the children’s hospital.

Patients can sing songs, play instruments, listen to music or make up new songs or stories.

No prior music knowledge or ability is required.

Calum Muir, a music therapist, said: “Children here are facing unique challenges so each session is a wee bit different. Sometimes we’ll hangout.”
