Cancer Patients tune in to Improved Hospital Experience

The hospital experience of chemotherapy patients at Royal Stoke has been improved thanks to UHNM Charity supporters.

UHNM Charity has been able to purchase eight DAB radios for Ward 202 at University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust’s Cancer Centre for patients to enjoy their favourite stations on whilst receiving treatment.

Janet Shaw, Nursing Assistant on Ward 202 said: “Our patients are already able to access free entertainment on their personal devices courtesy of UHNM Charity, but these radios are perfect for those who’ve forgotten or don’t own a smartphone or tablet. I’d like to thank the supporters of UHNM Charity who have made the purchase of these radios possible, they’ll improve the experience of patients who can spend hours at a time on the Unit.”

Steve Chaplain, 63, from Cannock has just started to receive treatment for neck cancer. He said: “My care here at the Cancer Centre at Royal Stoke has been spot on so far, I can’t fault it. These simple radios are great as it’s nice to have a bit of background music to distract you from the clinical environment around you.”
