Window Canopies for Granville Court

I am making a wish on behalf of the residents at Granville court in Hornsea. each summer we have a problem with the sun streaming into the lounges which means the residents burn, so we need some canopies attaching to the outside walls so we can pull them out when the sun is shining.

Disposable Cameras for Green Trees Lodge

Could we request some disposable cameras (such as those for weddings) for patients to record the last few weeks of Greentrees unit before it closes? These disposable cameras can be bought in multipacks. We would ask for at least 20 for this unusual "moment in time " project. The unit closes in 3 wks

Digital Cameras, Papers and Printers for PICU ‘recovery through art’ group

Several of our patients have been requesting for us to establish a photography group. We would like to be able to use digital photography in a therapeutic and mindful manner, within our gardens and out in the community. We would love to be able to get 2-3 digital cameras (14 bedded unit), a printer and some photographic paper to enable us to use photos in our popular 'recovery through art' group, in collages and display boards. Enabling patients in this way will be beneficial for engaging them in art and for getting them out and within the local area.

A bench and a greenhouse for the therapeutic garden in PICU

My wish is for a bench and a greenhouse for the therapeutic garden in PICU. The garden is used frequently by patients starting to take leave and a bench would allow them to sit and relax. We run therapeutic gardening groups and a greenhouse would allow our patients to engage in meaningful activity

Flexible knee and life size spine and pelvis skeleton to use during triage clinic

We are a relatively new, small team of general nurses working within the Humber Centre to raise awareness, provide health promotion and education and improve our patients overall physical healthcare. Our service provides care for patients within the Humber Centre with long term conditions as well as a primary care triage service. Our patients would hugely benefit from the team being able to use a flexible knee and life size spine and pelvis skeleton during our triage clinics to enable them to visualise problems and therefore understand the advice and exercises we may advise. This would encourage better understanding and self care-giving our patients some control back over their health.
