Hospital patients will get a more efficient service after a fundraising group donated £5,000 towards a new workstation for nurses.

The Friends of Stamford Hospital handed over the money to help expand the staff workstation in the John Van Geest ward at the facility in Ryhall Road.

The revamped room will give staff more space to prepare medication for patients and store frequently used medical equipment.

Previously the area was separated into several smaller rooms.

Matron and site manager Sue Brooks said: “This expansion gives the staff of John Van Geest ward more room to prepare medication for patients and keep frequently-used equipment within reach.

“We would like to say thank you to the Friends of Stamford Hospital for their donation and their continued support.”

Building work began on January 13 and is now complete.

The John Van Geest ward is being transformed into a nurse-led intermediate care unit as part of the £3.8m project to redevelop Stamford Hospital.

The plan, which was approved in October, involved revamping some of the site and finding a partner to take on the rest as part of a “health campus”.
