Lucy Dove is a Virtual Reality Health Play Specialist working at Leeds Children's Hospital and her role is funded by Leeds Hospitals Charity.

She has worked for the NHS for five years and uses both play and virtual reality to support children and young people through many different procedures, creating a positive hospital experience.

We asked Lucy what makes her proud to work for the NHS: "I am proud to work for the NHS because it allows me to provide patient-centred care and make a difference to individuals on a daily basis."

Thanks to donations we are able to fund specialist roles across Leeds Teaching Hospitals to support our hospitals to deliver the best care to patients and their families.

Donate today to make a real difference for patients, families and staff.

75 Faces of the NHS

To mark the 75th birthday of the NHS, we have collaborated with the Leeds Teaching Hospitals to capture 75 Faces of the NHS. Here in Leeds, we have world class NHS hospitals whenever we need them. This campaign celebrates the incredible work and commitment of all of our NHS colleagues who work tirelessly across a range of roles and specialities, to provide the best care to patients every day.

Every day until 5th July, we will be releasing a "face of the NHS" in celebration of this landmark anniversary.
