Sophie Roffe

Please briefly describe your clinical/medical experience to date?

I am a healthcare Play Specialist. I have worked on the Children’s Ward for 4 and a half years.

What motivated you to enter paediatric care in the first place?

Going through a childhood illness myself, I wanted to give better play and entertainment options for others, as well as procedural support to help the child feel better about what is happening.

How will the funding from The Evie Dove Foundation help you to advance your career and your impact/services to children?

To improve my skills and knowledge to implement ‘safe’ practice and resources on the ward for our mental health patients.

How did you find out about The Evie Dove Foundation?

Through the trust.
