Wymondham Health Centre has been given a makeover thanks to a generous donation from a local former patient. The donation was kindly left within a legacy to Norfolk Community Health & Care NHS Trust’s Charitable Fund. The fund uses donations to provide equipment and services that are above and beyond those funded by the NHS and make a genuine difference to patients.
Charity Development and Projects Manager Carol Plunkett said “we are so fortunate to have such generous and thoughtful donations like this one to support our staff and patients in this way. Refreshing a space really helps to elevate it and make it a warmer, more inviting place for the people in our communities to come and receive their care.”
The Health Centre in Wymondham has received upgraded comfortable furniture to cater for differing patient needs as well as two new pieces of artwork for the reception area, commissioned by local Wymondham artist Stephen Turner. The images reflect the beautiful Norfolk landscape and help to bring a calming atmosphere to the space, particularly for patients awaiting treatment.
The hard working centre and community nursing staff have also received a staffroom revamp, with modern multi purpose furniture to provide a bright relaxing space to take breaks and help aid resilience and recovery. NCH&C Charitable Fund is the official registered charity that raises money to benefit the patients, families/carers, and the staff of Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust.
