Chatty Benches Official Opening 10th February 2022

Three new ‘Chatty Benches’ were officially opened by Health Minister Robin Swann MLA on 10th February 2022 during his visit to the Robinson Hospital.  These benches are part of a key new initiative by the Northern Health and Social Care Trust to prevent and address loneliness.  Individuals can chat and connect with other people on these benches, supporting their positive mental health and wellbeing.

During his visit to the Robinson Hospital, Health Minister Robin Swann also dedicated a plaque and planted an Acer tree in memory of our Late esteemed colleague Dr John E Johnston, who selflessly provided many years of dedicated care in the Robinson Hospital and to many individuals and families in Ballymoney and wider area.
