About

In more and more countries, Clown Doctors have become integrated into the daily hospital routine as a ‘tool’ for an indispensable prerequisite for life. The funny chaos created by Clown Doctors brings smiles not only to the faces of the patients and their family members, but also to hospital staff and visitors.

Dr. Richard Aickin, former Director of Child Health ADHB and Medical Director Child Health Starship Hospital experienced first hand in the emergency department just how the Clowns Doctors transport ease and comfort in difficult life situations:

“There is a strong link between how you feel and how your body heals and that’s regardless of the underlying illness.  That if you feel more confident, more cheerful and more optimistic then you will get out of hospital sooner and are more likely to have a better result. 

I’m delighted to have Clown Doctors at the hospital, I think they do a great job and I also would like to see this initiative spreading into other children’s services around New Zealand.”
