State of the Art Lockers

State-of-the-art lockers head to Bridlington Hospital thanks to generous donations...

New specially designed bedside lockers are being introduced at Bridlington Hospital, thanks to the generosity of local people.

​A three year project by York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to design bedside lockers that would be accessible, practical and easier for patients will see thirty-six new lockers installed at the hospital. 

York Teaching Hospital Charity has donated £180,792, almost two thirds of the cost of the project, which will bring long lasting benefits to patients for years to come.

The project has involved input from across the organisation including infection prevention, pharmacy, estates and wards, and has included feedback from patients.

Jennie Booth, lead nurse medicines management and Vicky Angell, quality and professional practice sister have been key to getting the project to replace the Trust’s 1,144 bedside lockers off the ground.

Jennie explained: “We have looked at every aspect of how we can make the lockers more practical and easy to use for patients as well as taking into consideration patient feedback.

Vicky added: “The comment that constantly comes through in patient feedback is the issue of noise on the ward, particularly at night. To help with this the lockers have been designed with soft close doors and drawers.

“In addition, the colour has been chosen to be dementia and sight impairment friendly, so we feel we are really investing in equipment that is suitable now and in the future.”

Rachel Brook, fundraising manager for York Teaching Hospital Charity, said: “As usual we have our generous donors to thank for raising funds for projects like the new bedside lockers.

“This is typical example where we can fund the extras to improve facilities above and beyond the NHS for the benefit of patients.”
