The League of Friends of Teddington Memorial Hospital is thrilled to announce a significant donation by The Teddington Society, which is dedicated to revamping the teen areas within the hospital.
The generous contribution marks a milestone in the ongoing commitment of The Teddington Society and The Friends of Teddington Memorial Hospital to the well-being of our community.
The donation aims to help create a welcoming and uplifting environment for teenagers receiving medical care at Teddington Memorial Hospital. Recognising the unique needs of young people, the funds will be directed towards revamping of existing spaces, ensuring they are tailored to teenage patients.
Liz Waters, Vice Chair of The Teddington Society, expressed her enthusiasm for the project, stating, "We are delighted to support The Friends of Teddington Memorial Hospital in helping to enhance the experiences of teenagers undergoing treatment. It is our hope that the revamped Teen Areas will provide comfort and encouragement to those in need."
The teen areas' revamp is part of a larger project to enhance both the paediatric and teen areas of Teddington Memorial Hospital by Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust (HRCH). The environment in which children and teens receive medical care is pivotal in their overall well-being, comfort, and healing.
Well-decorated paediatric and teen areas can significantly enhance the experience of young patients, reduce anxiety, and promote recovery. Making enhancements to the paediatric and teen areas of Teddington Memorial Hospital is not merely a cosmetic endeavour but a strategic investment in the health and well-being of our community’s youngest patients.
In response to the donation, Simon Douglas Lane, Chairman of The Friends of Teddington Memorial Hospital, expressed gratitude, saying, "We extend our heartfelt thanks to The Teddington Society for their generous donation. This investment will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the well-being of our teenage patients, creating a more comfortable and uplifting atmosphere during their hospital visit."
The Friends of Teddington Memorial Hospital and The Teddington Society encourage the community to join in supporting this initiative. Both organisations remain committed to projects that enhance the quality of life for residents of Teddington and surrounding areas.
