The Friends of Stamford Hospital have donated £1,900 to create a relatives room and to decorate a children’s area in the minor injuries unit.

The relatives room will be on the John Van Geest ward and will provide a dedicated quiet space for doctors and nurses to speak to families away from the ward environment.

The donation will help to redecorate and furnish a meeting room and transform it into comfortable space for families.

A mural featuring a decorative jungle scene will also be put up in the children’s bay of the minor injuries unit.

It will guide children along the corridor to the x-ray department to give them something to focus upon during their visit to the hospital.

Both the refurbishments are expected to be completed by the end of August.

Matron and site manager for Stamford Hospital Susan Brooks said: “This donation will benefit our younger patients and the families of relatives who need to speak privately with our staff.

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

Michael Dronfield, Chairman of the Friends of Stamford Hospital, said: “We are delighted to fund this refurbishment, and we are grateful to so many people in Stamford and the surrounding area for their donations that make this possible.

“We are fortunate to have such an efficient and friendly hospital and are determined to give it all the support we can.”
