A huge thank you to the local communities for your support and offers of kindness for our wonderful staff during the past few weeks.
Our hospitals are currently faced with the highest numbers of covid patients since the start of the pandemic - significantly more than we had during the first peak. Staff are under immense pressure and we’re doing everything possible to look after their health and wellbeing while they work tirelessly to care for patients. Your offers of help mean so much and really do boost morale. However, at this time, the most important way you can help our staff is to heed government advice – Stay at home and only leave for essential reasons. Seek medical advice if you do feel unwell – the NHS across our region remains open to everyone.
During this intensely challenging period Frimley Health Charity has taken the difficult decision to no longer accept any physical goods or gifts delivered in person apart from those donated through the charity’s Amazon wish lists. The new variant is highly infectious and so we have taken this step to limit non-medical footfall within our hospitals to safeguard both staff and patients. The charity team will, of course, continue with their hard work in the background and any financial donations will be used to directly support various wellbeing initiatives for all of our staff. Thank you again for your generosity and well-wishes. If you would like further details, please view the Amazon wishlist for Frimley Park Hospital or the wishlist for Wexham Park Hospital.
