Talented young artists have seen their designs turned into bunting to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS.
Two hundred children across east London got creative for the competition, organised by Barts Health NHS Trust.
Six lucky winners have had their designs printed and hung across the trust’s five hospital sites.
Two of the winners, Jaden Monserrat Palma, 14, and eight-year-old Maria Grace Edassery, were presented with certificates at Newham University Hospital’s Rainbow ward on Wednesday.
The girls, both from Newham, were also given a string of the bunting bearing their designs.

“All staff on Rainbow ward are very proud of their artwork.”
