Laughter is the best medicine

Every week, Dr Doppit goes round the wards at the children’s hospital. But instead of a white coat and a stethoscope, Dr Doppit has a red nose and carries balloons. She is the hospital’s “clown doctor” and her real name is Hilary Day.

After studying drama at university, Hilary saw an advert for a clown doctor at the hospital. “The job was perfect for me,” she says. “My mother and grandmother were both nurses, so caring for people is in my blood. Also, I love doing children’s theatre.”

Before she started, Hilary did four weeks training, where she learnt how to do magic tricks and make balloons into funny shapes. She also had to study child psychology and basic medicine.

Her visits to the hospital start with a meeting with the nursing stuff to find out which patients a visit will be most useful for. Most children are delighted to see a clown, but there are some who are too ill, or areafraid of clowns. Hilary always checks first. Then she does some magic, makes balloon animals or tells them a story.

“We know that laughing can have a positive effect on a person’s health,” says Hilary. “It produces chemicals in the brain that make you relax and feel better.” Everyone agrees that regular visits from Dr Doppit can make a big difference to a child’s recovery. “Children in hospital miss their everyday life at home and at school,” says one hospital manager. “As well as possibly being frightened and homesick they are often bored. The clown doctor gives them something to look forward to and happy memories to take home afterwards.”
