Sky’s the limit at Southend Hospital

Cancer patients and their families can relax under blue skies whatever the weather at Southend Hospital, after a donation from local masons. The hospital has installed a ‘sky ceiling’ – a light decorated with a photographic image of a real sky view – in its radiotherapy department, with the aim of helping patients to relax. Members of Thames Mouth Lodge, No. 6994, paid for the light with a £3,000 donation. Nicolai Greet, radiotherapy services manager at the hospital, said, ‘When we became aware of sky ceilings and their calming benefits, we realised they could transform our radiotherapy reception area.’
