Provide a new state-of-the-art cancer centre at Colchester Hospital with fit-for-purpose furniture. Create a calming, welcoming environment for patients, their families and staff.
Ocura worked with the Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity, coordinators of the project’s funding, and the user groups to gain valuable patient insight. The Ocura team supported the project team, clinical staff groups and learnt about all stakeholder requirements. Furniture solutions were then put forward that supported the stakeholder vision.
Ocura, working collaboratively, has improved the experience of those who attend this facility. Unit patient, Roger Sharman, said: “It looks really good. It’s bright and spacious.” Nick Hulme, Chief Executive of the East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT), which runs Colchester Hospital, said: “It is so important when giving care, particularly to patients receiving regular treatment, that the environment is a calming and comfortable one. This is what we have now – a fantastic unit not only for our patients but for our staff to work in too.
