Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB) has two 100% single bed hospitals at Ebbw Vale and Ystrad Mynach. While being highly effective at reducing the spread of infection and providing patients with peace, quiet and privacy, some patients can feel lonely or isolated.
GAVO (Gwent Association of Voluntary Organisations) set up a flagship collaboration with the Health Board to tackle the issue: The Sunflower Project. We are evaluating progress of the project as it harnesses the time and energy of volunteers to befriend and provide a more stimulating environment for patients.
