NHS showing new mock-up room

NHS Dumfries and Galloway would like to invite members of the public to view a mock up of a single room. Open throughout April and May, the mock up replicates each of the 344 single rooms in the new hospital and will showcase the new design for a patient’s room.

Margo Christie, Associate Nurse Director, will be on hand to answer any questions.

She said: “We are delighted to offer the public this opportunity to take a look for themselves before the hospital opens, and to really understand the benefits of the single room.

“The benefits include a reduction in cross infection, improved privacy, dignity and confidentiality, and reduced noise levels, particularly at night.”

The mock up will be open to the public every Tuesday and Wednesday throughout April and May 1-2pm.
