Budding garden designer wanted to help create Chemotherapy garden

York Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is on the look out for a budding garden design student to help create a new garden for chemotherapy patients at Scarborough Hospital. 

The project will create an enclosed garden where patients and their carers can sit and enjoy being outdoors in between treatments. 

Currently the garden area leading out of the chemotherapy treatment room is a steep bank containing shrubs with a large grassed area, concrete paths and access routes. 

Jen Bennison, Assistant Capital Planning Manager, explained:  “The area allocated for the garden has many challenges and requires expert help to create a design which makes the best use of the space as well as being mindful of the specific needs of this particular patient group.

“As the project is being funded charitably, costs for the project are limited which is why we were hoping to enlist the help of a local horticulture or design student.”

If you are a local college or a student with an interest or skill in garden design and are willing to offer some assistance please contact Jen Bennison on (01904) 725143 or email
