Funds Set To Improve Parent Facilities for Children’s High Dependency Unit
Lawyers from national law firm Irwin Mitchell have donated £3,000 to support a project which will update the facilities available to parents whose children are being treated at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth.
The Serious Injury team based at the firm’s South West office have provided the donation to help the hospital update its parent shower room, which is used by adults while their children are receiving care in the Children’s High Dependency Unit.
The room is in need of modernisation by completely removing the existing facilities and adding a new shower tray and door, as well as new toilet, sink and flooring.
Following the donation, the hospital intends to undertake the project and have it completed as soon as possible.
Deborah Rose, a specialist serious injury lawyer at Irwin Mitchell’s South West office who visited the hospital to pass on the donation, said:
Expert Opinion“Through our work, we see first-hand the incredibly difficult circumstances that many parents face after a child has suffered serious injury or illness.
“While such parents are understandably focused on caring for their little ones, they also need to look after themselves and, with this in mind, we were keen to help as soon as we got wind of this fantastic project.
“We are delighted to be able to help Derriford Hospital and hope this donation will go some way towards ensuring that parents have access to top-class facilities when they visit and stay at the site.” Deborah Rose - Partner
Sue Rodgers, Fundraising Co-ordinator of the Children’s Happy Hospital Fund Charity, added: “We would like to thank Irwin Mitchell for their generous donation.”
