Colourful welcome for all at Wallingford Community Hospital

 

We funded these colourful rainbow vinyls for the front doors and reception area.

"It is really brightening everyone's day that attends Wallingford, we have had so many compliments on the impact of the rainbows, they are very well loved so much already!"

Dementia-friendly clocks added to wards and patient rooms 

We purchased 28 large wall-mounted clocks for City Hospital, Oxford and Bicester Community Hospital. 

"The patients love the large clocks - they can now see what the day and date is. This is a great help for most of the patients who have eyesight issues and/or dementia."

"We do not have the funds on a ward level to fund these ourselves. Oxford Health Charity are great for this sort of thing, especially as it is for the patients and creating the best experience for them is what we are all here for."
