Supporting Patients in Townlands Hospital

Townlands Today

It seems a long time since I last posted anything about the Hospital, largely because of the delays in starting and finishing it, and then the subsequent delays in getting things working well in the provision of services, which would apply to any organisation supporting the complexities of delivering the wide range of services that it does.

I am happy to report that the Hospital goes from strength to strength, and The FRIENDS OF TOWNLANDS stand ready to respond to those local requirements that can so improve the personal experience of those using the services the hospital provides.

Our first donation to the Hospital resulted from the Treasurers use of the Physiotherapy Department after having a new knee in April 2016. I asked them if there was any equipment lacking in the department that would make a difference, and they immediately said "Treadmill". The Friends agreed to purchase the treadmill on behalf of the Hospital and it has been a resounding success.

Our second donation was the bladder scanner and trolley in 2017 for the Urology Dept, which means that the visiting consultant can have equipment at his disposal that would normally be available at the John Radcliffe or The Royal Berks.

Additionally in the local Bell Surgery, we have supported educational talks by consultants covering a wide field of disciplines, which started in 2017 and continues in 2018.

More New Equipment for Townlands

Its been a busy new financial year for the Friends of Townlands, with several important purchases completed, all of which are deployed by the hospital staff to improve the comfort of patients' stay at the hospital.

We have bought:

Rotunda Platform
Bariatric Slings
Ipad and further software for speech therapy. (Full report to follow)
Manual Hydro Tilt 

To make these sorts of high value expenditure we need funds, so please remember us.

We only recently approved the donation to purchase this important rehab tool, and we received this email from the main user.

Dear Avril, I wonder if you would pass on my huge thanks to members of the League of Friends who were involved in the decision to purchase and iPad for the Speech & Language Therapy department here at Townlands.I have now made the purchase and it will be ‘put to work’ immediately. I believe it is going to be an immense adjunct to our clinical work and I am very appreciative of this generosity.Should anyone be interested in seeing some of the apps I would be happy to demonstrate! Kind Regards Lynda
