Stroke of genius for maternity unit

A corridor in the Neonatal Unit (NNU) at Ayrshire Maternity Unit has been given a colourful makeover thanks to recent donations to the NNU endowment fund.

Local artist Scott Johnstone, from Irvine, has transformed the main NNU corridor by painting beautiful children’s storybook scenes including characters from Winnie the Pooh.

The wall murals were painted over several months and it is hoped that Scott will paint more for the unit in the future.

Caroline Blake, Clinical Midwife Manager for Neonatal Services, said: “We are delighted with the artwork and would like to thank everyone who has donated and helped us to create this wonderful friendly welcome for people as they come in to the unit.”
