Providing vital help for local women
Tuesday, September 6, 2011
Alpha hospital, a medical facility situated in Sheffield Heeley constituency, was recently visited by local MP Meg Munn. She was met by Trish McCaffrey, the Nurse Director, Zsara Thomas, Business Development Director and Mark Tomalin, Chief Financial Officer. They told Meg about the support the hospital gives to patients both during and after their stay.
The hospital opened in March 2002 and has helped numerous local women with mental health problems and helped build confidence and offered continuing emotional support. The hospital is integrated with the surrounding community, the patients even having named all the hospital’s wards after famous Sheffield women.
“Alpha Hospital is no ordinary facility. The focus is on building self-esteem and confidence by addressing the root cause of mental health problems. Now that the hospital is expanding they will be able to meet the needs of more women who currently wait long periods for support of this kind.”
