Patients and visitors to Wotton Lawn Hospital have a new quiet space for meditation, reflection or prayer to help their recovery during their stay.
Bishop of Tewkesbury Robert Springett and Imam Hassan of Gloucester’s Masjid-e-Noor Mosque were guests at the official opening along with stained glass artist Liz Falconer, who created a piece of artwork for the space.
Wotton Lawn is an 88-bed mental health hospital with four wards sited near the centre of Gloucester, which provides in-patent services for the county.
Matron Gary Dodson said: “Admission to hospital can be a difficult time and it’s important that we have a holistic approach to the care that we deliver.
“So we are very privileged now to have a dedicated space where people can practice their spiritual beliefs, or spend time to reflect.”
