Hull receives the lion’s share of half a million pounds of capital funding being awarded to ten NHS Trusts today.
Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust will receive £105,000 of government funding to create four new ‘Changing Places’ facilities across both Hull Royal infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital.
Work to create the Changing Places will begin next month, starting in ED and at Castle Hill Hospital’s main entrance. Each Changing Place will feature a disabled WC and wash basin, ceiling track hoist, height adjustable changing benches and an assistance alarm. Work will start on the subsequent two facilities in the Clinical Skills Building and by Castle Hill’s Nightingales restaurant in April.
