Blood Pressure Machines for Patient Monitoring

After consultation with our Patient Participation Group we would like to purchase a couple of Blood Pressure machines to loan out to patients who need to check their blood pressure at home for a specific amount of days, as requested by the GP. This will help with the diagnosis of Hypertension etc.... The Blood Pressure machines would be available for patients to “loan” for a week so they can monitor their B/P at home so the GP’s can use this information regarding their future care, and possibly negate the need for a referral to hospital. The machines would be available to all patients. We do have B/P machines in the surgery but these are used by the clinicians so cannot leave the practice.

Request for Portable Projector

We would love a portable projector to enhance training that we provide to staff teams, families and homes out in the community. A team projector would also support us to go paperless in our PDG meetings and increase scope of shared learning through online resources, powerpoints and visual aids.

Everyday Object Colourcards for Speech Therapy

Our wish is for a box of Everyday Object Colourcards. The cards are used within Speech Therapy sessions to help patients with expressive dysphasia to work towards goals. The cards will be used in the rehab unit for daily therapy.

Table Tennis Table for Swale Ward

We would like to be considered for the provision of a table tennis table on Swale ward. The patients have a pool table but our table tennis table is broken. Several of the patients used to enjoy playing table tennis and this fosters a good atmosphere and is good exercise.

Gym Equipment for Patients

A number of patients who consistently use the Humber Centre gym have requested new equipment to improve their sessions. One patient has composed a letter on behalf of other gym users to this effect. I am enquiring about funding for gym equipment to improve mental and physical health.
