The nationally acclaimed ‘Enhancing the Healing Environment’ project which transformed wards 23 and 29 was the largest refurbishment of its kind for patients with dementia in an NHS hospital.
It saw the Foundation Trust invest more than £450,000, with a further £50,000 awarded from The King’s Fund, towards upgrading facilities to create a more calming space to influence patient behaviour and improve the wards for patients with dementia, visitors and their families.
