THE Bridlington Hospital League of Friends has helped make life more comfortable for outpatients by providing new chairs for the outpatients department.
The new chairs which cost £9,000 are not only more comfortable but are safer, designed to be easier to clean assisting with infection prevention and control.
Margaret Peel from the League of Friends said: “These chairs will be safer, more comfortable and make waiting for appointments and clinics a better experience for patients and relatives.”
Suzanne Meek, senior sister in outpatients, has thanked the League of Friends for their continued support of the department.
“These chairs will greatly enhance the patient experience,” she added.
Earlier this year the League of Friends purchased three specialist ophthalmic examination chairs for the outpatients department.
The Carma Specialist/Treatment Examination Chairs which cost £1,635 have an anti-MRSA covering.They are used by patients who attend appointments in the eye clinic.
