Helping to Make Christmas Extra Magical

Many of us see the festive period as a time to be spent with our loved ones, but for families with children spending Christmas in the hospital, it isn't always possible for everyone to be together. Fortunately, hospitals are full of teams of lovely people working away and going the extra mile to help make Christmas as magical as possible for families, and we’d like to help them.

We have developed some festive video effects to help staff make video updates from neonatal and paediatric units over the next few weeks extra memorable. Unit staff can record their vCreate videos as normal, and select from one of the options from the background drop down under Edit Clip, when typing a message for each family. We also have musical effects!

We hope families enjoy these special touches and that the effects will help staff create special memories that parents can keep forever, as all video clips can be downloaded and saved by parents.

For other ways to add some festive fun to the hospital, take a look at our previous blog post, Five Ways to Bring Festive Cheer to the NICU. Although it was written with the NICU in mind, it may still be of interest to those looking to celebrate Christmas in PICU too.
