  Friends' Support for 25 years


For the past 25 years the Friends have supported the Edington Hospital in a variety of ways. In 2000 the Friends contributed £100,000 towards the cost of refurbishing the hospital. Since then the Friends have purchased a wide range of medical equipment together with furniture and furnishings and items for the use of patients.

Examples of some of the higher cost items include:

    Ultrasound Bladder Scanner £7,600     9 Electric Beds  £20,000     9 Heartstart Defibrillators  £9,500
    Air Mattress  £ 3,300     Hyrefactor (Cauterisation Machine)  £1,000     Medical Smoke Evacuator  £1,500
Spirometer  £1,200     Bed Light Fittings  £1,500     8 Bedside Television Sets  £2,600

More recent purchases by the Friends include:

Smoke Evacuation Unit  £1,650    2 Recliner Chairs  £3,490
2 Cardiograph machines  £6,000    Blood Pressure Monitor  £1,100    Surgery Pod  £7,700
Electric Wheelchair  £2,200     Furniture & Furnishings  £5,200     Vascular Assessment Monitor  £3,300
The Friends are currently hoping to raise sufficient funds to purchase equipment and software which is especially designed to help those patients who are suffering from alzheimers or dementia. Donations to assist with this purchase, which is estimated to cost around £7,000, would be especially welcome.



  Centenary Celebrations


In 2012 the Hospital celebrated its centenary and the Friends marked this by a number of local events. These included an exhibition showing the history of the Edington, sports events, a fun and celebration day and a service of thanksgiving and rededication.
