Friends donate new recliner chairs to Musgrove's maternity unit - 27 June 2017

Musgrove Park Hospital’s Bracken birthing ward now has a set of comfy recliner chairs for family and friends to relax when visiting.

It is thanks to a donation of almost £5,000 from the hospital’s League of Friends.

The new chairs are already being put to use by parents, allowing families to really make the most of those early moments of bonding.

Hayley Murray, sister on Bracken ward, said she was delighted at the donation of such a special gift. “The new recliners make it much easier for fathers to stay, which gives families a real chance to bond,” she said. “Everyone on the ward would like to give their sincere thanks to the League of Friends for this kind gift.”
