Dementia friendly refurbishment of Medical 1 and 2 wards

The hospital authorities recently refurbished Medical 1 and 2 wards to make them more friendly to patients suffering from dementia. The changes include use of bold and contrasting colours; use of non slip flooring; and artwork. All to reduce confusion and distress in patients. The hospital spent a considerable sum on these improvements. The Friends were happy to make a sizable contribution of £15,000 per ward towards this.
