Frank Bruno opens 'Rolls Royce' mental health unit

  • Comment

Former world heavyweight boxing champion Frank Bruno MBE has opened The Crystal Centre, a new mental health care centre for older adults.

Mr Bruno, speaking at the launch said: ‘I’ve had a good look around The Crystal Centre and found my favourite room – the sensory room –  which is a great room for chilling! I’ve enjoyed meeting and talking to lots of the staff who will be working here – what they do is wicked. The building is fantastic, it’s really modern, bright, up-to-date and will really make patients and their families feel calm, relaxed and at home. It’s the Rolls Royce of hospitals.”

The £13m Centre comprises two inpatient wards for up to 34 patients, as well as community and day services to meet the needs of residents over the age of 65 who have dementia or other forms of mental ill health.
