Ada Kearvell Suite

Ada Kearvell Suite

The Friends have recently funded the reconfiguration of space on the Willows wards to create a second facility comparable to the well-used Jean King Suite.  Both suites enable close relatives to stay with their loved-ones for longer periods than the normal visiting hours, and afford more privacy, together with a range of amenities to help them cope with especially stressful times.

The new suite has been named in honour of the longest serving Matron of the Yeatman, Ada Kearvell, who was in post from 1908 until her retirement in 1934.  Read about her award of the Royal Red Cross medal by King George V in our “News” section.
