The Duchess of Cornwall has officially opened three new wards at Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

During her visit on Friday she toured the new facilities at the Calow based hospital meeting staff and chatting to patients before pulling a cord to unveil a plaque marking the opening of the £12 million pound Hasland, Elmton and Ridgeway wards.

Whilst giving a short speech after her tour the Duchess commented on the “lovely atmosphere, feeling of welcome and patient care” the hospital gave describing the facility as a ‘wonderful place’

The Hasland, Elmton and Ridgeway Wards are the trust’s largest development since it gained foundation status in 2005
