A new bereavement suite and family room has been opened within the accident and emergency department at Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
The room has been created in response to staff and patient feedback to provide somewhere quiet and private for loved ones.
Susie Robinson-Southery, nurse consultant in accident and emergency, said: “The suite provides much needed space for family and friends of patients at what can be very distressing and emotional times.”
Kat Byrne, department secretary, secured donations of products for the rooms from Sainsbury’s, in Lynn town centre and Mothercare.
Tracey Woods and Heidi Bunn, staff members, raised £131 through a 10km sponsored run to go towards furnishings and plan further fundraising through a half marathon.
