1. Cardiac Care Day Unit (CCDU) patients’ room in the Cardiothoracic Directorate
As we move into the coming months of the pandemic, patients will again mostly not be able to have visitors. This will mean that the Day Room on a ward becomes even more important; an excuse to stretch the legs, have a coffee, eat at a proper table, and watch TV on a large screen.
Therefore, our next fundraising project is to refurnish and refurbish the Cardiac Care Day Unit (CCDU) patients’ room in the Cardiothoracic Directorate at University Hospital of Wales. Working once again with John Lewis & Partners Home Design Team, we have a great design for a room that is comfortable, welcoming, and safe.
2. Refurbishment of T1 Quiet Room in the Cardiothoracic Directorate’s Outpatient Department
During outpatient appointments, having a comforting room to discuss medical and surgical interventions with patients and their relatives is essential. The room needs a functioning TV screen to also be able to show diagrams and short films to aid the understanding of potentially complicated information. Conversations like this are also scary to patients and their loved ones; it is difficult coming to terms with coping with essential but invasive interventions.
