New name for breast unit at Grantham Hospital - after Journal competition

Have your say

The breast unit at Grantham Hospital has been given a new name after suggestions were received from members of the public.

The recently opened unit brings all breast care services together in one place for the first time.

Members of the public were given the chance to name the new breast unit at the hospital with a competition run in the unit and through the Grantham Journal.

The staff from the breast unit voted on their favourite from the public suggestions and the name they have chosen is “Emerald Suite”.

Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist Nicky Turner said: “The breast care team would like to express their sincere thanks to everyone who suggested names for us. We are very grateful of the support of the community in helping us achieve this development at Grantham and District Hospital. The team decided to choose the name Emerald Suite as the word emerald means hope.”
