The walls of a new £4.7 million Woolverstone Macmillan Cancer Centre in Suffolk have been livened up with a range of murals, which were commissioned to improve patient wellbeing.

The old unit was replaced as it suffered from a lack of space, where privacy and dignity were also issues.

Health Consultants Willis Newson worked with Ipswich Hospital, construction partner Kier, interior designers from ADP architects and landscape designers, Fira on the Macmillan project.

Creative director of Willis Newson, Bronwen Gwillim says: “We wanted the centre to have a unique identity, something really unique to Suffolk, and the response we got from the staff and patients really helped to develop that.”
