Birthing UnitSTAFF on the Birthing Unit at Princess Alexandra Hospital were delighted to receive a number of Henry Moore reproduction prints this week.

Emily Unthank, Image and Licence Coordinator at The Henry Moore Foundation, kindly delivered the prints to Tracy Devonshire, Birthing Unit Manager at the hospital who will use them to brighten up the Unit.

Tracy said: ‘We try our very best to create a homely and non-clinical environment on the Birthing Unit – we want to make our patients and their family members feel as welcome as possible. However, we have so many blank walls to fill and these beautiful prints from a renowned local artist are perfect.’

Emily said: ‘Henry Moore lived in Perry Green in Hertfordshire from 1940. As a Foundation we aim to encourage public appreciation of the visual arts and what better place to achieve that than in his local hospital. We are delighted to donate these reproduction prints to The Princess Alexandra Hospital’s Charity and we hope many patients and their families are able to enjoy them’.

The Birthing Unit plan to frame the prints and display them as soon as possible. If you would like to make a donation to The Princess Alexandra Hospital’s Charity towards the framing costs please contact [email protected] or donate online at www.justgiving.com/pahcharity.
