Nottingham University Hospitals Cystic Fybrosis Unit

28 April 2014 09:29

The new £6.6m cystic fibrosis centre at Nottingham City Hospital opened its doors to patients on Monday 14 April and will set a new benchmark for the way that patients are cared for.

The Wolfson Cystic Fibrosis Centre will transform the care of this unique group of young patients by creating a 'home in hospital', where patients can not only receive all the treatment they need in one place, but also feel comfortable and at-home during the long periods of time they have to spend in hospital.

The new 16-bed CF unit is able to serve more than 250 patients from across Nottinghamshire and the surrounding counties, almost doubling the number of patients that previously could be accommodated.

Airwave supplied and installed a patient entertainment system to match the ‘state of the art’ facilities available at the new CF unit. The latest Samsung LED 46” TV screens were installed alongside the XBOX 1 console with Kinect to offer an interactive, enjoyable and most importantly fun experience for the patients.

Peter Homa, Chief Executive at NUH, said: "This new unit will completely transform the treatment of CF patients and will create a home in hospital. Patients can not only receive all the treatment they need in one place, but also feel comfortable and at-home during the long periods of time they spend in hospital."

"It's wonderful to see the building now complete and it's a great testament of the Trust's commitment to provide exceptional, high quality care to our patients. I'd also like to thank all of the donors for their generosity, as without them we wouldn't have been able to build this state-of-the-art facility."
