UHNM Charity also supported the staff in providing a special gift to families to mark the occation.

Families of patients receiving care on the 26-bed unit have been given a bag containing gifts including a card, candles, keyrings, pin badges, cookies and a baby footprint kit.

Our amazing staff have provided the majority of the items themselves and we were up late last night putting everything together. I’d also like to say thank you to UHNM Charity for supporting us.”
