£1 million refurbishment approved for adult mental health unit in Stevenage

18 Jul 19 - 18 Jul 20

Aston Ward in Stevenage is to receive a refurbishment costing £1 million to replace the outdated dormitory style rooms, with more comfortable and high quality single room accommodation for up to 20 service users.

 Members of the Aston ward team 

 

Providing inpatient mental health care for adult service users on the site of Lister Hospital, Aston Ward is the only site left within Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust’s (HPFT) inpatient estate to still have dormitory provision.

HPFT’s Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Finance Keith Loveman said: “HPFT is committed to providing the highest quality care and facilities, fit for the 21st century. Upgrading Aston Ward will create a more pleasant and therapeutic environment for our service users which will help to improve their overall experience and wellbeing.”

The works are due to be completed by the end of 2019.
