Thanks to donations, Hywel Dda Health Charities has been able to purchase furniture and artwork worth over £4,000 for the staff room in Gwenllian Ward at Glangwili Hospital.

Gwenllian Ward provides care for people who are recovering from a stroke. The charity has funded seating, a dining table, a coffee table, lockers and a wall mural for the staff room.

Sion Davies, Senior Nurse Manager, said: "We are very grateful that charitable funds have enabled us to refurbish the staff room in Gwenllian Ward. It’s really going to improve the working environment for staff working on the ward.

“Staff rooms give staff an area to relax and temporarily disengage from their working day. It only takes a brief respite in a work-free zone for people to relax and recharge. The team has purchased green furniture and natural art to encourage peace and tranquility, it’s really going to improve our staff morale and well-being.”

Nicola Llewelyn, Head of Hywel Dda Health Charities, the official charity of Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: “The support of our local communities enables us to provide services over and above what the NHS can provide in the three counties of Hywel Dda and we are extremely grateful for every donation we receive.”
