Whitby Hospital is currently undergoing a £13 million refurbishment and together with HEY Smile Foundation, we have set an ambitious target to raise £200,000 to add ‘that extra sparkle’ to the hospital and gardens over and above what the NHS core budget can provide.

All money raised will go directly to the Appeal, to fund the purchase of items to improve the new building and outdoor areas, with particular emphasis on dementia friendly enhancements.

This year, the organisers of the Mulgrave Estate 10k run, which will take place on Sunday 8th August at 11:00, are working in partnership with Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust, to help raise funds for the Appeal and have kindly donated 20 places for participants wishing to raise money for the Whitby Hospital Appeal.

First run in 2012, the race is held at the Mulgrave Estate, Lythe and is organised by Loftus and Whitby AC, in conjunction with Mulgrave Community Sports Association. All proceeds from the race are donated to Mulgrave Community Sports Association who provides wonderful sporting facilities in the Whitby area, such as football, cricket and bowls.

Tony Hare, Mulgrave Castle 10k Organiser, said:

“We are so pleased to donate 20 places to Whitby Hospital at this year’s race. We hope the proceeds will aid with their fundraising, and also act as a token of thanks to local NHS staff who have shown their dedication to our community during the pandemic.”

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.

Dinning with Dignity

I am looking into funding for a training session for cooks in 24 hour care facilities. Part of the session plans to involve a chef in the private sector who specialises in diet modification for those with dysphagia (swallowing difficulties). For him to attend the session would be approximately £700.
