Sue and Norman Harris said: “The seating provided for the visitors room comes with our very special thanks to all the team in the Critical Care Unit.”

Critical Care Unit Matron, Sylvia Harris said: “Myself and the critical care team cannot thank Sue and Norman enough. Whilst Sue was a patient in critical care unit, her family spent many an hour sitting in the relative’s room and are fully aware how difficult and tiring it is for people who have a loved one being cared for on the unit. This new sofa will provide comfort for relatives in the future.”
