“Vibrant and uplifting” artwork produced by students from Highcliffe School will be placed within the Stroke Unit at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital (RBH).

A group of students from the Christchurch school visited RBH and were shown around the Stroke Unit. They learnt more about how their artwork – produced as part of their final year project – will be helpful to stroke patients through their recovery.

Nikki Manns, Acting Clinical Leader for the Stroke Unit, said: “Having artwork on the Stroke Unit is vibrant and uplifting and benefits both patients and staff. It really brings life to a clinical environment.”

Stroke care at RBH is delivered by a multi-disciplinary team. This includes doctors, nurses, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dieticians, social workers, the community stroke co-ordinator and the stroke research team.
