A new wellbeing hub for staff working at Orpington Hospital was opened by Gareth Bacon MP on Friday 19 August.

The new purpose-built facility in the hospital courtyard is a bright and airy space for staff to take a break, and have a snack or beverage.

The hub was funded by the Trust, with a generous donation from the Friends of Orpington Hospital.

As he opened the new hub, Gareth Bacon MP reflected on the difficulties healthcare staff had experienced over the last few years due to the pandemic, and thanked them for their hard work.

Commenting on the new wellbeing hub, he went on to say, “I’d like to thank the Friends of Orpington Hospital and staff within the Trust who have made this happen, and I hope you enjoy using this facility, which looks fantastic.”

Professor Clive Kay, Chief Executive of King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Orpington Hospital, said, “We know how important facilities like this are, and I am very pleased that we have been able to create such a fantastic space. I hope staff will enjoy this facility for many years to come.”
