An outpatient area just for children has opened at the Horton General Hospital in Banbury. Office space near the main outpatients department has been converted to provide dedicated paediatric clinics and a waiting room. The £300,000 project took about a year to build. Zoe Butler, Horton’s children’s ward manager said: “We now have a much better environment, focused for children. It’s much more family-friendly and we are already getting positive feedback about how welcoming it is.” The children’s area frees more capacity to run more clinics in the main outpaitents area. About 100 children per week are seen at the hospital and pictured with Mrs Butler is patient Nathan Morris.
