Enhancing patient environments
WUTH Charity has funded a number of ‘patient experience’ projects in recent years, to provide improved facilities and day rooms. For example, with support from the Charity, Surgical Ward 17 is now able to provide long-stay patients with nutrition problems a comfortable space where they can relax.
Mr Titu (Consultant Colorectal Surgeon) said:
“The availability of such day rooms really is an important factor to a patient’s recovery. Our patients now have a space where they can relax away from their beds. They can get up and move earlier after surgery, which in turn assists with recovery. It is also an important space for spending time with family and visitors in a relaxed, non-clinical environment.”
