Renovated hospital ward is opened

A hospital ward has reopened following major renovation work.

The newly refurbished Oker Ward at Whitworth Hospital has reopened with improved patient facilities.

Physiotherapy services are also moving back into their newly modernised surroundings, with the completion of phase one of the hospital’s redevelopment, supported by Matlock Hospitals’ League of Friends.

The completed renovation work was started in 2012 and included updating two single rooms with en suite facilities, costing £52,000, converting a day room into a four–bedded bay, costing £55,000, and updating the physiotherapy outpatients area at a cost of £170,000
