A SPLASH of colour and eye-catching design helped announce the arrival of Rainbow Ward at Hillingdon Hospital.

The paediatric day ward, officially known as Rainbow Daycare Unit, is open for business on the ground floor.

It houses services from the former Wendy Ward and is part of an on-going rearrangement culminating in the completion of a multi-storey unit this summer.

With the former Peter Pan Ward now on the fourth floor of the tower block in Fleming Ward, it was Wendy’s turn to make the permanent move.

By adopting the NHS rainbow solidarity symbol, it was decided to name the ward accordingly and decorate it with a suitable design.
