The Landscape Construction team at CGM Group (CGM) were overjoyed to have created a garden for the new Cancer Wellbeing and Support Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in King’s Lynn. The new state-of-the-art facility is a welcoming space for patients to access non-clinical services at QEH with a specific focus on supporting the long-term impact of cancer.
CGM redeveloped the space outside to become a welcoming environment for those visiting the centre alongside QEH medical staff. The area has been specifically designed to provide privacy allowing for reflection and relaxation during stressful and upsetting times.
Works carried out included relocation of an existing path to allow all to enjoy the space, creation of raised planters, screening and circular paving; light stone was chosen to brighten the area. The addition of sensory plants along with seating, a bird bath and decorative boulders finished the garden.
All works were completed in time for the grand opening where feedback from the staff and patients praised CGM for creating a peaceful, secluded and tranquil area.
Project Manager Kerry Doyle said: “Creating outside spaces to be enjoyed by so many is why we do what we do. I would like to thank the staff at The QEH for allowing us this wonderful opportunity to create such a meaningful garden.
“We were supported by some of our fantastic suppliers: GAP Hire, MKM Kings Lynn, Downham Home and Garden Store and Glover Road Haulage.”
