Patients, carers and Stars Appeal supporters will have an opportunity to see the new Pembroke Unit and find out more about the work of the team and the improvements that have been made over the last year as part of an open afternoon on Sunday, January 22.
Local people have helped provide a bright new treatment area for patients with cancer or blood disorders, established a quiet area and assessment room where staff can review patients in sensitive surroundings and a new outpatient area. Donations have also helped provide a new ultrasound machine and specialist equipment so that staff can collect stem cells from patients who need intensive treatment such as transplants.
Tamara Everington, Consultant Haematologist, said: “We are enormously grateful for the support we receive through the Stars Appeal, which has enabled us to make a number of improvements for patients with cancer and blood disorders. This afternoon event gives us an opportunity to show our thanks and we have invited patients, carers and supporters along to see the new facilities and learn more about the service and the care we give to all our patients on the Pembroke Unit.”
There are still a small number of remaining places left for the afternoon event. For information about the afternoon or to find out more about the Pembroke Unit and its services please contact Tamara Everington at firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 01722 336262. Extension 2066.
