A wonderful example of co-production

News: Woodlands Garden opening

The Estates Team at Oxleas NHS have been working with service users to regenerate a disused outdoor space at Woodlands Unit in Queen Mary’s Hospital and the results are truly showstopping. 

The new outdoor therapy space has been co-produced and includes outdoor exercise equipment for keep fit, a sports pitch, a special planting area for horticulture, a shelter and quiet space - ideal for taking time out to reflect. 

Stephen Dilworth, Vice Chair of the Board of Directors at Oxleas NHS, officially opened the new facility and said: “What we’ve done with this space is marvellous, it’s a real asset that our service users and the staff alike will benefit tremendously from. 

“The co-production of facilities like this is vital and I’m absolutely thrilled that service users have chosen what this beautiful outdoor space should include and how it should look.”
