New look for children's ward

07 February 2018


Ward 10, the Childrens’ Ward at the James Paget University Hospital, has a bright new welcoming look after work by the Paget in-house painting team.

The team of three have been hard at work giving a colourful re-vamp to the walls of the unit, on the first floor of the hospital.

Now, rather than the standard magnolia, there’s a blue sky and a lower yellow, green, orange and purple stripe border, which will be decorated with other little touches as the work continues.


Senior Sister Lisa King, who initiated the change, said the project aimed to brighten the stay of young patients.

“We have taken inspiration from other childrens’ wards to try to make Ward 10 more attractive and child friendly, and the painting work has given the unit a fantastic new lease of life.”
