£2.1m TO TORBAY HOSPITAL FROM THE LEAGUE OF FRIENDS
The League of Friends is about to pay a total of £2.1m to Torbay Hospital on new equipment including £566.000 for vital clinical and medical items for the Acute Medical Unit shortly to open on Level 2, as well as providing £1.3m for 2 new Scanners for radiology, a further £89,751,00 for computers for use in Wards throughout the hospital, a Ventilator for the Emergency Department, Dementia equipment for the Care of the Elderly wards, various equipment for the Post Anaesthesia Care Unit and a host of other items which will enhance Medical and Patient Care.
When the National Health Service started in July 1954 all previous voluntary help for Torbay hospital disappeared and so the Torbay Hospital League of Friends was formed. Over the last 68 years the League has raised a staggering total of over £21m. Since 2016 it is especially proud to have been able to supply £1.6m on equipment for the brand-new ICU which did so much to help during the hight of the pandemic. More recently, in 2019 the league was able to donate £1.3m to provide 34 new high-definition endoscopes a 3 video processing units to re-equip the busy Endoscopy Department which undertakes some 11,000 procedures each year.
During the course of the last 12 months we have been able to promise further funding to Torbay Hospital to the extent of just over £2.1m. This huge amount of money is down to the incredible generosity of the people living in Torbay who have continued to support us wholeheartedly isn spite of Covid-19 and lockdowns.
It is more than likely that anyone who has had anything to do with our hospital either personnally or through a relative or friend, has benifitted from something the league has provided. Because they are all volunteers, The League of Friends is proud to be able to say that on average for every £1 donated 95p is spent on the hospital - a fantastic achievement.
