Community asked to help wards’ wishes come true

Community support is being sought to help make a difference to Walsall patients at the Manor Hospital – this Christmas time and beyond.

Walsall Healthcare’s Well Wishers charity is working alongside the wards and teams based in the hospital and across its community sites – including Goscote Hospice, Fair Oaks Day Hospice, Palliative Care Centre and Hollybank House – to create Amazon wish lists.

The wish lists include items that will enhance patients’ experience whilst in the Trust’s care.

From toys for young patients, to jigsaw puzzles, games, wordsearches and radios, ward staff have advised the charity what would best benefit their patients after seeing what has worked well previously and what would improve their stay while receiving treatment and care.

“Thank you to anyone who can offer support.”

Purchased items will automatically be delivered to The Fundraising Hub at Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust.
