Donation helps towards enhancing environment

Posted on: 15/03/2018

Royal Bournemouth Hospital has been refurbishing Ward11 and the surrounding area to help enhance the environment for the patients.

It is predominantly used by those with life threatening illnesses as they undergo treatment and the work that has been done has made the environment much more patient friendly and has been a great boost to the morale of the staff.

Bournemouth Hospital Charity exists to raise funds to enhance patient care and provide items above and beyond what can be funded by the NHS and the funds are used to directly benefit both patients and staff.

Maria Tidy, Senior Corporate Fundraiser at Bournemouth Hospital Charity said “we are delighted and truly grateful that J.P. Morgan has supported this project and that we have been able to refurbish Ward 11. The majority of the patients using Ward 11 will have a stay of 3-4 weeks but sometimes a stay of up to 4 months is necessary following certain cancer treatments and the refurbishment provides these patients with better surroundings and facilities which is often the key to recovery and the success of their treatment.”

Tracey Struthers Frost and Earl Gooden, both members of the J.P. Morgan Community Relations Committee, were able to go along and see what has been accomplished so far.

“The rooms and nurses station were really bright and colourful and we are delighted to have been able to help,” says Tracey.

(J.P. Morgan employs 4,000 people at its technology and operations centre in Bournemouth and has a strong history of community engagement).
