We don’t want our children to feel isolated when they are in an isolation room, we want to build them a bedroom which they can make into their own with space to play in and be with their family. Many of the bedrooms currently don’t have a view and when you are in isolation this can have an effect on your well-being. The new ward will maximise the view of Weston Park, making them feel connected to the outside whilst they are getting better.
Patient’s bathroom facilities are limited and parents currently have to go onto a different ward for a shower or a bath. This is obviously not ideal and can be stressful. Whilst care is the most important part of any patients’ treatment we want them to feel relaxed, at ease with everything they need around them. En-suite facilities would mean both patients and their family would have their own private space with everything they need, without having to walk down a ward.
