Areas within the University Hospital of Wales (UHW) are looking a lot more interesting and brighter thanks to stunning new murals decorating the walls.
These murals, designed on nature themes were painted by talented artist Stacey Brass (Designs by Stacey). The latest artwork, located in Denbigh House, was funded by Cardiff & Vale Health Charity’s Make It Better Fund, which is for general projects that enhance the service provided to patients.
The latest mural is of Worm’s Head from a clifftop. This beautiful seascape is designed to calm and relax patients ahead of their appointments.
Rebecca Soundy, Diabetes Youth Worker said: “I’d like to thank Cardiff & Vale Health Charity for funding this mural for our patients because it has made such a difference to the waiting room and their clinic experience. The waiting room is now bright, colourful and calming. By using local sights, such as The Worm’s Head in the mural, we hope it will help the patients feel more comfortable being surrounded by these familiar sights.”
Mike Jones, Chair of the Charitable Funds Panel which oversees the spending of the Make It Better Fund, said: “I’m delighted that the Make It Better Fund, which also receives the proceeds from the Staff Lottery, has been able to fund this project. We know that often patients might be nervous or in pain when they come to the hospital for treatment, and this artwork, along with the excellent care from the staff, will make such a difference.”
