We have another new addition to our PAT (Pets As Therapy) Dog team – this is Victor.

Victor is three years old and he’s just starting his PAT dog career, with his first visit to our hospital on Tuesday, 23 May.

He and owner Sarah popped in and, despite it being just a familiarisation visit to start with, he was soon visiting patients on Ward 6 and our Ambulatory unit.

Sarah, from Bradwell, says; “He’s so social and loves meeting people. He has such a calming effect and seems to naturally know when someone needs him.”

Victor will join our other PAT dogs in making regular visits to our wards and departments, so please stop and say hello if you see him.
