Theatre Trip for Friendship Group

The Friendship Group consists of many group members who are socially isolated. Some have little or no family to spend time with at Christmas. We would like to take them for a trip to the theatre in December, to see Oliver at Hull Truck.

Hi, we would love a dartboard for one of the wards. Our dartboard has broken and it really was fab for socialising.

Electronic Screen in GP waiting area

Humber have recently taken over the Princess Medical Centre on Princess Ave. This area is very diverse with over 20 languages spoken by the patients. We would like an electronic info screen in the reception area and to make this whole area more patient friendly.

Hot drinks dispenser Supplies for Bridlington

Hot drinks dispenser supplies for patient day room please. Please can you order tea cartridges. Some of out patients (home oxygen service/St Catherine’s outreach pain clinic) can spend up to 3 hours seeing the clinician. Patients attending for outpatient appointments have no means of obtaining a hot drink during their stay with us (the hospital main reception is not accessible by people with limited mobility/frailty) and it is welcoming (for patient support) if we can offer them a hot drink during their visit.

Funding to make a video for clients using the CITOP service (Crisis and Intervention Team for Older People)

The Clinical Psychology department raised some money for Health Stars last year and I wondered whether we would be able to use this money to pay one of our service users to make a film about our other service users that could be used in a number of different ways. The first, for them (the service users) to present to the board about the work that is being done. The second is to help other service users (particularly at the beginning of their journey). The third is to promote the fact that older people suffer with mental health problems and often their voice is ignored. Thanks in advance.
