The work of the dedicated team who help patients at The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) get ready to go home has been generously supported by a donation of over £900 from the Co-operative Local Community Fund.
The hospital have a specialist team who focus on helping a patient get ready to leave and ensure that they have the right conditions at home.
The team have a bank of spare clothing which can be given to vulnerable patients who may be admitted to hospital with few or no additional changes of clothing of their own.
Stephanie Newman, voluntary services discharge coordinator at PAHT, said: “We are delighted that the donation will allow us to purchase more clothing for our vulnerable patients.
“This ensures that the dignity of all patients is supported through the hospital process. Also, for some of our patients who are homeless, they will leave with sufficient clothing to move into their temporary accommodation.
“The donation will continue to help hundreds of vulnerable people in our community – we are so thankful.”
