Momentum has been working with the Paediatric Oncology Unit in the Little Oaks Ward at St Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey to support children being treated for cancer and to improve the healing environment.
This new treatment room allows chemotherapy needs to be administered in a closed, private area. The room has been designed and re-decorated sympathetically to help provide a more homely and warm environment, enabling the child patient to feel more comfortable and secure whilst undergoing treatment. Cheery distractions and entertainment on the walls and ceilings help to quell the child's fear of the clinical procedures taking place. In addition, concealed storage units for medical accessories are also useful for lessening anxiety.
The refurbishment of these treatment rooms form part of Momentum’s long-term goal to enhance the healing environment within St Peter's Hospital.

We are delighted to bring our expertise and experience to St Peter’s Hospital so that children with cancer and their families going through the long and challenging journey, can do so in a calm and soothing environment.
