With more patients in hospital, more pressure on our staff and more isolated patients who live a long way from their families, communication devices are becoming more and more crucial throughout the NHS.

We were thrilled to use some of the incredible amount donated to Our Charity during the first months of the Covid-19 Pandemic to purchase a number of iPads to support patients to communicate with loved ones while isolated in Hospital. We now need to buy more, so as part of our 25th anniversary appeal, we want to buy 50 more to be used across the NHS in Somerset.

These will be used to reduce isolation in our community hospitals, for improved communication on wards, to support our younger patients and distract them during procedures and for activities that can aid patients with recovery in many different departments like stroke and neurological rehabilitation. They can also be used for reminiscence activities for patients with dementia, which help with memory and reduce anxiety.
