PAT Teams Karen and Archie plus Lyndsey and Leo STARS of CBBC’s Hospital Superheroes!

Hospital Superheroes on BCeebies and CBBC, follow Cat and Dodge as they meet Hospital Superheroes around the country.

In December the show visited University Hospital Southampton and met with two Pets As Therapy Volunteers: Karen Ramsay and Lyndsey Uglow; their dogs Archie and Leo. Karen has been visiting the brave young patients at University Hospital Southampton, where she helps them feel better about their treatments and procedures. Presenter Dodge (also a dog) said: “Archie helps Georgie feel brave and more confident about getting her heartbeat checked. Archie gets his heartbeat checked first, then it’s Georgie’s turn”.

Meanwhile, Lyndsey and Leo were accompanying Gracie to theatre where she was scheduled to have an operation. Gracie said: “Leo makes me feel really brave and strong when I go to theatre”. Good work Leo!
