04 Sep Women’s clinic in Southend gets stunning upgrade
Thanks to generous donations a series of stunning refurbishments have taken place in the women’s clinic at Southend University Hospital, with the opening of a brand new tranquility room and enhancements to our gynaecology ambulatory suite.
These improvements have enabled Southend to develop a ‘one stop’ service where women can receive diagnosis and treatment on the same day. The tranquillity room provides women with a private space in a relaxing environment, and allows them to discuss treatment, reflect and take time to recover.
Funding came from Rob Turrell and his mother’s sister, Liz Malone, after Rob’s mother sadly passed away at the hospital. Rob said: “Mum would have loved this room, it’s beautiful and creates a nice relaxed atmosphere for patients.
Funding also came from Cervical, Ovarian, Perineal, Endometrial Support (COPES),the Essex gynaelogical cancer support network who also funded the tranquility room and contributed to the enhancements to the gynaecology Ambulatory Suite which includes the hysteroscopy room and recovery room.
