An exciting and engaging way to help children reduce their anxiety when visiting the hospital. Learn about imaging. Games: Fix Charlie's Leg, Catch the Sick and 6 more!

Hetty has a tummy ache and needs to go to hospital where she will have an ultrasound. This is the story of her visit to the hospital: she will learn all about what happens and even gets to give her stuffed toy an ultrasound.

In this first, full version, Hetty meets new friends: Priya, Charlie, and Freddie. They each need different imaging techniques, including X-Ray, MRI, and CAT scans.

Priya has a chest infection, Charlie has a broken leg, and Freddie has a concussion. We follow them through the hospital while they are looked after and play games to help you understand what might happen to them. You'll also meet Pete the Porter, Nurse Ethel, and other characters in the hospital that will help the children get better.

An exciting and engaging way to help children reduce their anxiety when visiting the hospital.
Learn about: nebulisers, ultrasounds, MRI scanners, and CAT scans.
Games: Wee in a pot, Scan Dino, Fix Charlie's Leg, Catch the Sick, and more!

Look out for our new stories in 2018, including Diabetes, Oncology/Cancer, Allergies, and Dentistry.

Based on the original idea of Dr Ria Evans and Dr Rebecca Duncombe. Created by Global Initiative. Generously supported by NHS 2023 Challenge and The Initiative Fund.

A star in the making

I love Hetty and her sidekick Dino. A great fun app to share with my young children. Some of the bone games are challenging but clearly there has been a lot of thought about the hospital content. We want more!

Fun app for children

Great concept for kids, this will certainly help my child before she goes into hospital. Looks like some of the bugs have been fixed since it first came out too, which makes a difference.

Must have a bug in it as when I started watching it I couldn’t close it and do anything else on my phone. Had to reboot my phone to close the app
