East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust has launched an exciting new project to enhance outdoor spaces at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre.
Plans for the two-year project were unveiled and viewed by patients, staff and visitors for the very first time.
Many positive comments were received from patients through the course of the day.
The scheme, drawn up by Aileen Shackell Landscape Design, includes a green walking route and the refurbishment of a sunken chemotherapy garden.
Restoration of the garden will provide a therapeutic outdoor space for patients receiving chemotherapy and their relatives.
Plans for 2020 include revitalization of two terraces and a courtyard garden that serve patients in the Centre’s wards.
The Cancer Centre is keen to hear from any eager gardeners interested in supporting the project as it develops by donating some of their valued time and experience.
Donations of construction materials and a number of wish-list items would also be gratefully received.
The project is funded by Heathrow Community Communities for Tomorrow and is also supported by the East and North Hertfordshire Hospital Charity.
It is being delivered in partnership with the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare and Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
If people would like to know more, or to volunteer to help, please contact Ginnie Abubakar, Community Engagement Manager.
