Opening of Hope Butler Suite at new hospital

Greg opened a bereavement suite for the parents of stillborn children and those who die shortly after birth at the new Tunbridge Wells hospital.

The suite, which has a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, is in memory of Hope Butler, who died 16 years ago at the former Pembury Hospital.  Hope's mother, Emily, also spoke at the opening and is pictured here with Greg.

The hospital has worked closely with Tunbridge Wells Sands (Stillbirth & Neonatal Death Charity) Group to develop this new facility which is the first bereavement suite in the country to be included in a new hospital from the planning stage.
