Back to Nature

Have you visited outpatient area 3 at Stirling Community Hospital recently? The walls are now sporting new artwork showing leaves, trees and branches, designed to help children and young people relax whilst waiting to be seen.

The idea to surround them with ‘nature’ was created by visual artists Sharon Quigley and Lindsay Perth and developed through workshops with staff, patients and Stirling Young Carers groups.

Some of the illustrations echo the designs in the children’s ward and outpatient’s area at Forth Valley Royal Hospital, and a local businessman, who has a long association with the Stirling Hospital and who has supported improvements for patients young and old through the Friends charity since its Infirmary days, has generously donated the entire cost of the project.
