Scale donation to the Children’s Ward
Thank you to Stephen and Rachel from BondMason for visiting our Children’s Ward. Bondmason have funded the purchase of special scales for the Children’s Wards and Outpatients Department.
A high percentage of children that come to us for treatment have mobility issues and use a wheelchair. Unless there is access to these Portable Wheelchair weighing scales it is difficult to take an accurate measurement. This will make a huge difference!
