Patient sacrifices birthday gifts to fund new equipment


A former patient of Warrington Hospital has raised a total of £1,477 to fund a brand new blood pressure monitor to say thank you for the ward that took care of her.

Pam Caley was diagnosed and treated on ward A6 at Warrington Hospital, which is dedicated to patients with digestive diseases.

She was so grateful for the care she received she gave up gifts for her 65th birthday and instead asked her friends and family to donate money to go towards much needed equipment for the ward.

Pam’s friends and family managed to club together an incredible £683 – this, along with a personal donation from Pam herself, provided enough funds to purchase the state-of-the-art blood pressure monitor, which will undoubtedly make a huge difference to future patients on the ward.

Pam said, “I will never be able to repay the staff on ward A6, nor consultant surgeon Mr B. Taylor and his team for the wonderful care I received. They truly are amazing professionals and are a credit to the hospital and the NHS.”

Helen Higginson, fundraising manager for Warrington and Halton Hospitals’ Charity, expressed her gratitude to Pam saying, “Pam is a truly inspirational person who has been through challenging times and yet only thought of how best to repay the wonderful support she received whilst in our care.”
