Dorset County Hospital

7:41am 30th May 2013

Cleaners and porters at Dorset County Hospital have been coming up with ideas on how to make patients feel less isolated.

Some of the suggestions taken on board include delivering free newspapers to the rooms and decorating them with more imaginative colour schemes.
