Refurbishment of gym begins

We are excited to announce that work on our Medicine for Older People gym will start this week!

The room has now been cleared, and will not only be a place for our elderly patients to exercise both their bodies and minds but also enables us to provide a better hospital experience.

The new purpose-built specialist gym will include elements like plasma screens and WiiFit technology encouraging our patients to engage in the activities taking place on screen as well as providing adapted exercise equipment and a private space for assessments.

Over the next few months, we’ll be keeping you updated on the progress of the gym at University Hospital Southampton, and would like to thank our community who donated to our appeal in order to make this possible.

Help us to revolutionise the care which is given to our elderly patients.
