Our approach: Such an environment can never be a ‘home from home’ but our objective was to avoid the hospital stereotype as much as possible. Therefore we included comfortable cinema style chairs within the social space, purple and turquoise themes with Wall Glamour ‘activity’ art, a juke box and a widescreen TV, pinboards for personal posters and pictures, bespoke furniture in the single rooms included overbed light canopies with colour-change lighting.
Thanks to our involvement with Grosvenor Interiors and gifts from our generous supporters, Leicester Hospitals Charity has had a significant impact on patient environment within the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. Several key areas inside our Hospitals have been given a “facelift” with the use of colour, design and bespoke furniture. We have formed a good working relationship with Grosvenor who have created quality branding and themes we are proud of and more importantly, have made a huge difference to our patients stay and well-being.
