WHITWORTH Hospital in Matlock is to undergo a major revamp with nearly £280,000 pledged by the League of Friends voluntary group.

An extensive 12-month programme of refurbishment will take place across the site from this autumn.

Phase one involves physiotherapy and in-patient facilities and phase two will see an improved reception, waiting area and more treatment rooms.

Pamela Wildgoose, secretary of Matlock Hospitals’ League of Friends, said the league was delighted.
