Right Arrow Hospital League of Friends transforms waiting area
12 October 2017 at 14:23

A children’s waiting area at Ormskirk hospital has received a makeover thanks to the League of Friends.

The waiting area within the antenatal and gynecology clinic has new child-friendly furniture, flooring and a mural painted by local artist Gary Scarisbrick. The area allows children to be entertained while their mothers or carers wait for their appointment.

Robin Rootes is a midwife in the clinic and helped design the mural featured on the wall. She said: “The new children’s area has had a complete revamp and it’s made such a difference to the atmosphere in the clinic. The children now have somewhere inviting to play while they wait, which helps their mum or carer relax.

“We couldn’t have done it without the support of the League of Friends.”

Now the area is complete the team are looking to get some new toys for the children to play with as the current ones are a little worn and tired. Any donations of new toys would be gratefully received.
