Hospiscare Heroes – A huge thank you for donations of PPE

A very special thank you to the community who have come together to support us during this difficult time

Today, we are sending out a very special thank you to the community who have come together to support us during this difficult time. We have been in real need of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to protect our doctors and nurses as they continue to care for local people living with a terminal illness, both on our ward and in patients’ homes. Our community has not let us down and we are sending out the following special thank you for the donations of gloves, masks, goggles, aprons and hand gel that we have gratefully received.

Firstly, a huge thank you to the University of Exeter for their generous donation of gloves, aprons and 110 FFP2/FFP3 masks. There were two trolley loads in total and our clinical staff were so grateful to receive these, as you can see above! The University have also informed us that there are more on the way.
