Critical Care Healing Garden – Hopes and Dreams

Last week, we welcomed ex BBC film maker Peter Champness on site to record the hopes and dreams of some of the team involved in the creation of the Critical Care Healing Garden at Royal Cornwall Hospital.

Delivering Critical Care Outdoors

On hearing of the epic fundraising ambitions of Robin Hanbury-Tenison, Peter volunteered his time to document the whole process and we couldn’t be happier with the snippets that have come from our very first session.

Amongst the overgrown and neglected courtyard in the Trelawny Wing, Peter captured the passion of so many of those involved. Exciting first steps in the next chapter of this development.

Taz Zee, Service Manager.

“It’s going to be really amazing to deliver care; physio, nursing, whilst outside in the sunshine.”

Alice Gibson, Senior Physiotherapist.

“They can come outside and sit with husband, wife, daughter, children and just be normal… Just being outside in nature is a medicine itself.”

Roberta Fuller, Head of Hospital Reconfiguration.

“I know the journey the staff have gone through to get this on the agenda and we want to do them proud.”

Dr Ruth Creamer

Lisa Niemand, Matron Critical Care Unit.

“Being able to take our patients outside in whatever stage of their critical care journey, whether they are on – ventilation and partially awake or actually in their rehab phase when they are able to take in a bit more around them, adding to their journey and to their improvement is going to make a really big impact.”
