What about Hinchingbrooke back wards?
I AGREE that the new wards at Hinchingbrooke ( Hospital refurb complete, March 18) but why didn t the work include the rehabilitation wards in a separate part of the hospital. My mother-in-law was in Damson Ward (refurbished) for three weeks, Spruce Ward
I AGREE that the new wards at Hinchingbrooke ("Hospital refurb complete, March 18) but why didn't the work include the rehabilitation wards in a separate part of the hospital.
My mother-in-law was in Damson Ward (refurbished) for three weeks, Spruce Ward (refurbished) for one week and now Lavender Ward (a rehabilitation ward in the separate part). What a contrast.
Surely elderly and rehab patients have as much right to be in refurbished wards as anyone else. The refurbished wards have toilet and shower facilities in each bay and room, but in Lavender etc there are five bays plus separate rooms that have to share two or three toilets.
The elderly and some rehabilitation patients have more need for these facilities to be closer, and certainly the more modern surroundings would be better for them in cheering them up, giving them more enthusiasm to get on.

Come on, Hinchingbrooke. Think of all the elderly and rehab patients and also the nursing staff. Don't they deserve it also?
