The Friends of the Edington

Charity description

The Friends of the Edington logo
The Friends of the Edington raise funds to enable the Edington Hospital to purchase the most modern medical equipment, to ensure that the nursing staff have the most up to date professional training and to enhance the décor and general facilities of the Hospital.

The wide range of medical equipment which the Friends have purchased in recent years include Electric Beds (£20,000), Bladder Scanner (£7,600), 9 Heartstart Defibrillators (£9,500), a Surgery Pod (£7,700) and 2 Cardiograph machines (£6,000) as well as numerous smaller items.

The Friends also fund the cost of an Activities Coordinator who arranges activities for patients to ensure that their stay in hospital is as pleasant and stress free as possible.

In describing the work of the Friends Dr Morgan Flynn says “the Friends of the Edington have greatly improved the quality of care available to patients and have made a wonderful difference to the well being of patients.”

More detailed information on the work of the Friends is available elsewhere on the Edington Friends website.
