Hinchingbrooke Hospital has been presented with four brand new orthopaedic wheelchairs by the Friends of Hinchingbrooke Hospital and Gwenda Cards.
The four wheelchairs can take a heavier weight and will enable the porters to move patients with greater comfort and safety. The chairs have also been colour coded for different departments and will be given to the Emergency Department, X-ray, Fracture Clinic and the main reception.
The Friends of Hinchingbrooke Hospital, including Gwenda King, who regularly runs the Gwenda Cards stall in the hospital foyer. Gwenda’s stall has raised over £1,100 which will be added to The Friends fund which is used to purchase much needed equipment for the hospital.
Bev Balls, Patient Services Manager, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to Gwenda and The Friends of Hinchingbrooke Hospital for their continued support. The new wheelchairs will be used in different areas across the hospital. They are very comfortable and easy to clean and also have leg extensions, which are useful for people with fractures to their knees and ankles.”
