Ward 5 who specialise Endocrine is supported by a dedicated matron, discharge coordinator, ward pharmacist, occupational therapist and physiotherapist. We work hand in hand with the diabetic nursing team, vascular team and the foot care team.
In addition to the diabetic care we are also part of the amputee rehab for diabetic patients. We offer staff the opportunity to gain knowledge and training on diabetes and its care, wound care, mentorship, vascular and amputee care in addition to other endocrine conditions. We also look after acute medical patients from ITU e.g. DKA. As part of our team you will be on a preceptorship and given opportunities to do diabetes, tissue viability and mentorship courses.
The charity’s goal is to provide equipment and services that go beyond the NHS for patients, staff and visitors. We work hard with the hospital to ensure that the charity is not plugging the gaps. What you are helping to provide genuinely enhances the healthcare available to the local community in a way that would not otherwise be possible.
The charity pays no VAT on medical equipment, so your money goes further to provide the kind of specialist equipment that makes such a difference to people in their hour of need.
