Chemotherapy suite re-opens after huge fundrasing campaign
NGH employees at the opening of the refurbished chemotherapy suite
A chemotherapy suite that treats over 450 chemotherapy day case patients each month has been officially re-opened following huge public response to a fundraising appeal.
The newly-refurbished suite has increased capacity by four additional treatment bays which will reduce waiting times for patients. With the careful use of design, lighting and colour, the treatment area is a more welcoming and calm environment offering more privacy to patients as well as being a more practical working space for staff.
The fundraising campaign was led by the hospital's charity, Northamptonshire Healthcare Charitable Trust. The total cost of the refurbishment was £650k. £500k was donated by individuals and local groups and businesses specifically for the refurbishment with the remainder coming from the charity’s general funds.
Treatment for patients receiving chemotherapy was temporarily relocated on the hospital site during the refurbishment.
