Heart patients benefiting from charity donation

Patients requiring a test to monitor the electrical activity in their heart can now benefit from a new machine bought by charitable funds.

Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust’s official charity, The Health Tree Foundation has spent £3,000 on a new electrocardiogram (ECG) machine for Grimsby hospital’s coronary day care unit (CDCU).

The machine is used to measure electrical activity of the heart to show whether it is working normally, and records the heart’s rhythm.  

CDCU ward sister Jayne Robinson put a request into the charity’s Circle of Wishes for the machine. This is the charity’s unique way of matching the charitable intent of the community with the wishes of the Trust’s patients. Wishes can be put forward by patients, visitors and staff members at the hospital. Wishes aim to go over and above, providing a better patient experience within the hospital.

Jayne said: “This valued piece of equipment will be used to help our nurses provide a more efficient service. We are so grateful to the Health Tree Foundation for granting our wish. This is a fantastic addition to the equipment we have available and will enable us to gain better insight into the condition of a patient’s heart.”
