A group of more than 20 doctors, nurses, healthcare assistants as well as colleagues from other parts of UHNM have raised over £7,000 to improve the patient experience of patients in A&E by completing the gruelling national Three Peaks Challenge for UHNN Charity!
The group climbed Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon back in September.
Organiser staff nurse Stephanie Wilcock said: “Patients can spend periods of time alone in cubicles which can be quite isolating, so I came up with the idea of fundraising to improve their experience and journey through the department. We also want to use the funds to improve the environment of the relative’s room that patient’s families are in.”
“I’m proud of everybody for taking on the challenge with me and for doing an amazing job with the fundraising trying to make patients and their families journey as comfortable as possible.”
