Doncaster war hero Ben Parkinson has opened a new ward which will help older people gain more independence before they can return home from hospital.

Ben opened the Hazel Ward at Tickhill Road Hospital, which is the same hospital where he was treated after he was injured in Afghanistan in 2006.

The ward offers support for older patients who no longer require acute hospital care, but would not be able to return home without additional help to become more independent.
