In the 15 years I have been part of the NHS I have seen and been involved in lots of the wonderful things that it does for patients and their relatives. The NHS is brilliant! I am so proud to be part of it, but it is not a secret that it struggles to achieve everything it would wish to. Donations and fundraising contribute to the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Charity to make patient and relative experiences even better. It also improves staff experience, which is so important in its own right, but is also recognised to improve patient care.
If you can spare any change to help power me round this half marathon and improve patient experiences, it would be so much appreciated! Plus it would make me happy that I wasn’t wrecking my ankles for no reason, and make you happy that you are doing a good deed! Any amount, even just a tiny bit of spare change would be very gratefully received and make a difference at Mid Yorks.
The MY Hospitals Charity has supported a variety of
Dual infusion pumps for chemotherapy. The ability to provide complex chemotherapy treatments involve infusing two drugs simultaneously, yet at different rates
and require the patient to be attached to two large infusion pumps. The dual infusion pumps deliver two chemotherapy drugs via one infusion pump rather than
two, which allows the patient more freedom to be able to move around and maintain their independence whilst also reducing the inherent clinical risk.
Creation of the Bereavement Suite Rooms. This will make a huge difference for those experiencing trauma and loss in their life, to have the facility for a private area for families to grieve and take time to come to terms with circumstances.
Mediotech exercise equipment. A Thera-vital exercise bike was purchased for the Spinal Injuries Unit. The bike offers a means of passive and active exercise to the upper and lower limbs of patients affected by Spinal Injuries.
Furniture for people living with Dementia. A grant was awarded to purchase furniture and soft furnishings to create a reminiscence room for people living with Dementia. This provides a therapeutic and calming environment within the hospital and helps to make a hospital stay less isolating and distressing.
A residential trip to Bendrigg Lodge Burns Camp. A grant was used to fund a burns camp residential trip for children and families affected by burns. The camp gave the families the opportunity to share their experiences and gain support, reducing the isolation often felt by children impacted by burns. It also allowed the children
to develop new skills which will help them when dealing with challenges in the future.
