In December 2020 a new isolation ward was refurbished at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, to care for the Trust’s most fragile and poorly patients.

Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Charity played a significant part in providing the all-important extras and finishing touches for patients and staff on the new ward.

The Charity provided the funds to provide the finishing touches to the ward, such as a newly kitted out staff room, additional resources to support virtual patient visiting and decorative effects to the corridors and side rooms..

"We now have a space that is welcoming, calming and scenic for patients who are cared for on ward 18. Every time I enter ward 18 I am amazed at how lovely the ward looks and feels. We really appreciate the kindness and generosity of our communities for donating funds to allow us to create such a wonderful space.”

Helen Hodgson, Matron

**A special thank you to Mark Flynn Photography of Huddersfield for donating a range of images to display in the ward corridors and 15 side rooms, the images of local landscape and surroundings of Huddersfield really make a difference.**
