A BEAUTIFUL rose tree has been incorporated into the design of Maple Ward’s sensory garden thanks to a donation from a grateful patient.
The rose tree was donated by Beeford patient Ann Dales, who after undergoing four operations with the Trust wanted to say a lasting thank you to Scarborough Hospital staff.
Mrs Dales underwent four operations between 2008 and 2010, including two keyhole knee surgery and two shoulder operations.
Under the care of Orthopaedic Consultants Mark Andrews and Jonathan Livesey, Ann wanted to convey her thanks to the two surgeons and all the staff who helped look after her during her four hospital stays.
Ann said: “After hearing that the Trust was building a new sensory garden, I thought that a contribution to this project would be a great way to say thank you to everyone.”
James Hayward, Director of Facilities said: “The sensory garden aims to provide a calming diversion from the day-to-day hustle and bustle of the hospital, benefiting both patients and staff.
“We have worked the addition of Ann’s rose tree into the design and would like to thank her, for her gratitude and thoughtful donation.”
