Charity Horder Healthcare has said a big thank you to supporters and donors who helped raise £15,000 for its 2017 appeal.
It has been spent on a variety of items for the charity’s two specialist hospitals -The Horder Centre in Crowborough and The McIndoe Centre in East Grinstead. The clinical staff believe the new items will make a big difference to patients’ experience and wellbeing.
The items include:
- A handheld device that illuminates veins making them easier to see for taking blood
- A machine that is used after knee replacement surgery to allow continuous movement and ensure the best outcome after surgery.
- A kit for measuring blood glucose in blood.
- Equipment for The Butterfly Scheme, which provides a system of hospital care for people living with dementia
Rachel Dixon, Operations Director from Horder Healthcare, said: ‘We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported our annual appeal which allows us to buy patient-focused items and extend our services. We are always so grateful for the donations we receive; every penny goes directly into improving the services we can provide for our patients.’
