As part of a £13.8million redevelopment project, West Lane Hospital is refurbishing the Westwood Unit to create a new 14 bed assessment and treatment facility, with the aim of providing a more welcoming environment and comfortable hospital experience.

The NHS Foundation Trust worked closely with patients to develop a facility that will have as homely a feel as possible and has specified Tarkett’s Tapiflex Excellence 65 in Natural Oak for flooring throughout the unit.

Available in more than 100 colours and 13 designs, Tarkett’s Excellence 65 is a popular choice for architects and specifiers in health and aged care sectors.
