Hospital League of Friends transforms
children's waiting area
A children's waiting area at Ormskirk
Hospital has received a makeover thanks to the League of Friends.
The waiting area within the antenatal and gynecology clinic has new
child friendly furniture, flooring and a mural painted by local artist Gary
Scarisbrick. The area allows children to be entertained while their mothers or
carers wait for their appointment.
Robin Rootes is a midwife in the clinic and helped design the mural featured on
the wall. She said:- "The new children's area has had a complete revamp
and it's made such a difference to the atmosphere in the clinic. The children
now have somewhere inviting to play while they wait, which helps their mum or
We couldn't have done it without the support of the League of Friends." Now the area is complete the team are looking to get some new toys for the
children to play with as the current ones are a little worn and tired. Any
donations of new toys would be gratefully received.
