An array of visitors, members, governors, hospital staff, local community groups and carers and their representatives recently helped The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust by sharing their views and opinions at the Future Ward Workshop event.
The aim of the day was to gather precious ideas about what a modern hospital ward should look like. The attendees had great fun bouncing phrases off each other and they used photographs and images to develop ‘a look’ that appealed to them.
The Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr Rose McNeely, showed her support and actively took part in the workshops. Many topics were discussed, including whether wards should have private single rooms or smaller bays instead.
We would like to say a very big thank you to everyone that took the time to express their thoughts on the day. The information gathered will help to further inform the future development of Rotherham Hospital wards
