The WBCC is using Dry July funds towards a number of much needed refurbishments, including:
Level 2 and 3 waiting areas - the current space has insufficient and inappropriate soft furnishings for patient privacy and comfort. The environment will be made to be more welcoming, less clinical and have both entertainment and relaxation facilities available.
Multi-purpose room renovation ward 5 North - used for family meetings to hold difficult discussions in a private space, facilities will be made to move a patient bed into the room, which is big enough accommodate a large whanau. The renovation will include new soft furnishings, paint, shelving, plants, appropriate art work, and blinds.
Renovation of day room on ward 5 North - renovation will include the kitchenette, computer space, children’s area, curtains, blinds, and soft furnishings, painting, and a music system.
