The Extra Step Fundraising for Bedford Hospital


Friends of Bedford Hospital pay for A & E Equipment.

The Extra Step have been a supporter of the local charity for several year with Denise Robinson, Managing Director often helping out at the various fund raising events.

"This is something that i've been very passionate about and it never ceases to amaze me how generous people are when we are asking for doantions".

A recent  fundraising campaign has paid for two new state-of-the-art ventilators for Bedford Hospital's A&E.

The equipment promises to be hugely beneficial to paitients, particularly amongst the elderly and those short of breath.

Having such access to them in the A&E department will also relieve pressure on staff and increased the efficiency of how patients are treated in the unit.

Felicity Scott, Chair of the Friends of Bedford Hospital, who hosted the campaign, said:  “The charity feels privileged to have worked towards such a worthwhile goal.”

Dr Stuart Lloyd, A&E consultant, added: “I'd like to thank the Friends of Bedford Hospital and all those who donated, for making it possible for us to buy these vital pieces of equipment, which are now in use and making a great difference to the patients we treat.

“The new equipment could not have come at a better time, as we saw an increasing number of patients recently with breathing difficulties.

“Although we are in spring, another cold snap could arrive at any time, so don't forget your regular medication, as this could prevent you from visiting us and enable you to stay well.”
