The Friends of Shaftesbury Hospital group is set to fund £250,000 of improvements to the hospital car park.
Chairman Julian Prichard explains why the works to introduce a one-way vehicle route between Magdalene Lane and Abbey Walk will help to safeguard the immediate future of the hospital. The project should start in May.
Julian also offers Alfred an update on plans to buy electric vehicles for use by staff visiting discharged patients who require ongoing support to continue their recovery. The transport will also be used to collect patients from home and bring them into hospital, freeing up the Ambulance Service for more serious callouts.
Julian is hoping to find some new committee members to join his newly-recruited Friends treasurer.
