7 Vital Signs monitors

Thanks to the generosity of the following donors, 7 new vital signs monitors with accessories and stands have been purchased and have just arrived at the hospital.

Sufian Sadiq and colleagues from Luton Sixth Form College raised nearly £7,500 for Unleashing Potential ( who partner with Mai Aisha Trust ( of Malawi.

Dr Kim Stevenson worked for 9 months
in 2012 at the QECH as a junior doctor on an entirely voluntary and self funded basis. Before she went to Malawi she started some fundraising and between her own efforts at Altnagelvin Hospital, Londonderry (especially A&E and Paediatric departments), those of her church, 
St Columbas, Belfast , her mum at Harberton Special School, and personal donations she raised £3,000.

The balance of the cost of the monitors has been met from a bequest we received specifically for medical equipment.

A big THANK YOU to Sufian and Kim and everyone involved in enabling the purchase of these vital pieces of medical equipment.

Dr Neil Kennedy , Head of Department at QECH looking very pleased as he shows off one of the new monitors.

He said :

"The monitors will help us assess very sick children efficiently and accurately. Within seconds we will know if they need oxygen or other emergency treatments.

The monitors will be located on all of the paediatric wards in QECH”.
