Golf captain donation to intensive care unit

The captain of Holme Hall Golf Club, Andrew Maw chose the intensive care unit (ICU) at Scunthorpe General Hospital after being impressed with the care his father received on the unit.

 Every year the captain of the golf club nominates a charity and this year the club raised more than £2,500 through a number of competitions.

 Andrew’s father, Patrick Maw, was an inpatient at the unit four years ago when he needed ventilator support for a chest infection.

 Andrew said: “I thought I was going to lose my father but the attention and care received from the staff on the unit was phenomenal. This is why I chose this unit as our charity.”

The team on the unit have already begun working with the hospital’s charity, the Health Tree Foundation, to purchase some high flow blenders with the donation. This equipment uses mild air pressure to keep patients’ airways open.

 ICU senior sister Amanda Holmes said: “On behalf of the ICU team I would like to thank Mr Maw and others who have kindly made donations in thanks for the care received by their relatives and the support given to them by the nursing team.”
