Treehouse retreat opens for patients

Patients at Holy Cross Hospital in Haslemere now have a tranquil space where they can connect with nature following the opening of a wheelchair-accessible treehouse on 11 August.

The patient whose former passion for outdoor activities had sparked the idea was the first to enter the beautiful new structure after Dr Llewelyn cut the ribbon at the official launch event.

Dr Llewelyn, an NHS doctor, was also given a tour of the hospital, which is home to 40 patients with severe neurological disabilities and long-term conditions.
