Armitage Shanks has partnered with Royal Preston Hospital to create an “inclusive and welcoming” children’s washroom for the hospital’s paediatrics ward with a “sunny beach theme to put the children being cared for, as well as those around them, at ease”.

The company refurbished the washroom and installed grab rails, back supports and a hoist to help support young patients with physical limitations. Armitage Shanks also installed back-to-wall, supportive toilets with an anti-microbial glaze to reduce the risk of infection.

“We have worked on many hospital projects with the NHS and we were delighted to secure the contract with the Royal Preston Hospital’s Paediatric Ward, as we understand the importance of protecting vulnerable patients, especially children and disabled people,” said Ideal Standard senior sector marketing manager Tony Rheinberg.

“Our ultra-reliable, research-driven bathroom solutions were chosen to improve the safety of young patients and also actively minimise the spread of harmful bacteria across their premises. We very much look forward to working with the Royal Preston Hospital going forward and hope the children and young people of the ward enjoy using their new washroom.”
