In early December Hibernian made their initial donation to NHS Lothian Charity has welcomed a donation of acoustic panels for Midlothian Community Hospital from local housebuilder Dandara.

Dandara is currently offering new homes at its Eskbank Gardens development on Viscount Drive, Eskbank, just one mile from the hospital.

The acoustic panels, which will be located in the newly refurbished Older People and Primary Care Ward, will help to benefit patient wellbeing by reducing noise through absorbing some of the echo in the busy lounge and dining areas of the ward. The screens have been cleverly designed to portray familiar images of the Lothians, making the ward feel more homely and welcoming as well as providing comfort to patients.

Tumong Edwards, Community and Events Fundraiser at NHS Lothian Charity, commented:

“It has been a pleasure to work with Dandara and the Midlothian Community Hospital to bring these acoustic panels into the hospital to benefit patients and staff. They will be a wonderful addition to the ward and will have a really positive impact on everyone’s health and wellbeing. We are so grateful to companies like Dandara whose donations help us do even more to improve patient and staff experience.”

Kirsty Jack, Interim Service Manager for Older People and Primary Care at Midlothian Community Hospital added:

“We try hard to maintain a peaceful ambience, and the acoustic panels help by absorbing some of the echo and reverberation of day-to-day noise in these spacious areas. We’re so lucky to benefit from having these amazing pictures displayed in our ward, it makes all the difference.”

Lisa Archibald, Head of Sales at Dandara East Scotland, said:

“Being in hospital can be a difficult time for patients as they are away from home comforts. We hope that the acoustic panels provide some sense of comfortability and ease for patients and the nurses on the ward. We couldn’t be prouder to support Midlothian Community Hospital.”
