Your support helps us in many different ways, we’ve listed just some of them below:
Supporting people with Learning Disabilities | help us do more
The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital treat a high number of people with Learning Disabilities each year. We’re proud of the care we offer to everyone and we are always keen to make improvements wherever possible. Last year we recruited our first ever Learning Disabilities nurse, Nathan Samuels. He has been hard at work making sure the services we provide meet the needs of people with learning disabilities. Nathan has supported staff to ensure feel supported through every step of their care journey.
But we want to do more and we need your help!
Support specialist training
We know that we can make our care even better. We want to provide specialist training to our staff so that anyone with a Learning Disability who visits our hospital will be cared for in a way which exactly meets their needs. We want to make this training mandatory so that it becomes embedded in the culture of our hospital. We believe that everyone with a Learning Disability deserves amazing care and you can help us achieve this. To provide additional training to one member of staff costs just £5. To train all our frontline staff it would cost just £800, a small cost but worth the huge positive impact! Could you help?
Help build Sensory rooms
Sensory rooms have been proven to help people with all kinds of Learning Disabilities and several Mental Health conditions. They can help make people feel more calm and happy in their care environment. We have a high number of Learning Disability patients and we believe their experience would be greatly improved by being able to offer them a sensory area. With your help we can make this happen! Make a donation today and make a difference to just one of our patients lives.
