Situation

The dialysis unit within the childrens hospital on Pelican Ward does not provide sufficient space ordinarily found in other Hospitals. The unit in itself isn't as child friendly and as welcoming to the children as it could be which we would like to change.

Solution

At Kidney Wales we plan to solve the above by extending the unit by occupying the room adjacent to the unit, then more space will become available and adaptations will be made to make the unit more child friendly as patients will be spending 4-6 hours a day, 3-4 days a week at this unit. This project will improve the lives of patients visiting the unit regularly.
