Three members of the Heatherwood League of Friends visited staff members on November and gave them all a monetary present as a reward for their hard work over the last year.

Chairman of the League, Roy Ryman, said: “We know the staff at Heatherwood work tirelessly to provide excellent care for their patients, and we feel it is important they know the work they do is recognised and appreciated.

“We hope our thank you presents will enable them to share a little Christmas cheer with colleagues.”

Sister of pre-operative assessment, Rena Johnson, said: “What a lovely surprise to welcome our friends from the League to our unit and we thank them for their generosity.

“They are fantastic supporters of the hospital and often purchase additional pieces of equipment to enhance the care we provide to our patients.

“Earlier this year the League very kindly bought a special chair for our unit to allow us to take pre-operative blood samples then and there, so patients don’t need to make an extra trip to our phlebotomy department.

“We are also excitedly waiting delivery of a new TV they have donated to the department.”
