Southport and Ormskirk Hospital benefit from children’s quiet room

Jake’s cool idea for children’s quiet room!

Children helped design a new hospital quiet room for young patients who need a calming environment.

The “Chillaxation Room” was named by Jake Jones, from Skelmersdale, who is a member of the West Lancashire Children and Adolescent Mental Health patient group. Their ideas were incorporated into the final design of the room.

“The name just popped into my head,” said Jake, 13, who attends Our Lady Queen of Peace School, Skelmerdale.

He joined staff and other members of the group to mark the opening of the Chillaxation Room in the children’s department at Ormskirk hospital.

The room, which includes a TV, sensory toys and decoration, has been fitted out with support from the NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group and Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust.

Fiona Short, Paediatric Liaison Nurse, said: “We are very pleased with the room now it is finished and thank the participation group for their ideas and input. We have had good feedback from children and families who have used the room so far.”
