The first mobile well-being lounge has landed at Homerton Hospital to give staff a space to unwind for two weeks.
The Wellbee lounge is located on a double decker bus provided by Project Wingman, a charity set up and run by current and former airline crew.
The independent NHS support initiative was launched by members of the airline community in April last year.
Tonya Chalker, Homerton hospital's charity manager, said: “We are delighted to be chosen as the first port of call for the Wellbee bus.
"It provides a great place to provide much needed relaxation to staff on their breaks from the stresses and strains of working on the wards and other parts of the hospital and community”.
