The Emergency Department (ED) at King's College Hospital is one of the busiest in the country, and with the demand for urgent care rising, it's only getting busier. That's why we're delighted to support a major refurbishment project undergone by the Trust, which will enhance both the capacity and environment of the ED Majors area.
A dedicated team of representatives from the ED department, patient experience and the charity have worked together to transform the area completely. Soothing artwork, modern furniture and LED skylights have been installed to create a more calming space for both patients and staff.
The artwork, reflecting scenes of the local area, has been handpicked to ease anxiety and create a relaxing atmosphere in a space where patient waiting times can be long.
LED skylights which mimic natural daylight brighten up the space for patients as well as staff, which is particularly important during the lack of daylight in winter months.
Thank you to Sound Environments, King's ED team and mental health advisory groups, and not least our incredible supporters, who have brought this project to life.
