Those who have a loved one staying at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital (RJAH) can now send them a personalised pick-me-up package thanks to the hospital’s League of Friends.
While strict visiting restrictions are in place the League of Friends has launched this service so those who have a loved one staying at RJAH are able to send them a message and/or a gift bag during their stay.
Richard Scott contacted the hospital Friends in order to send his wife Sarah a loving message and a gift bag during her stay at RJAH following a full hip replacement.
Richard said: “I was very concerned about not being able to be with Sarah immediately before and after her surgery, so it was such a relief when I became aware of this service – at the very least it meant I was able to ensure that she had a wonderful surprise gift to receive post-surgery.
“I was able to let her know that despite not being able to be there physically, the rest of the family and I were thinking of her and looking forward to her returning home.
“This service the League of Friends is providing really is invaluable, especially at a time when we are unable to visit our loved ones at such a vulnerable and lonely time.”
Sarah said: “Staying in hospital and not being able to see those closest to you can feel quite isolating – so receiving a gift bag full of my favourite treats, a good magazine and the loveliest message from my husband was just the pick-me-up I needed post-op.”
Victoria Sugden, Charity Director for the League of Friends, said: “The League of Friends is absolutely delighted to be able to provide this service to patients from their loved ones. 
“It is such a difficult time for everyone and especially hard for those in hospital unable to have visitors – anything that helps to cheer patients up is our pleasure!”
