NHS staff donning their running shoes
A mix of ten doctors and nurses have been training hard, and this weekend will be putting all their hard work to the test as they take on the New Forest half marathon and 10km run.
This Sunday our liver and gastroenterology staff will be taking on this marathon task to support Southampton Hospital Charity.
Mark Wright, Consultant, comments; “We have a really passionate team who care about their patients and where they work.
We want to improve the patient environment and fund a major upgrade of the gastroenterology and liver ward in the hospital. This will include improved facilities and two new state of the art high care areas on the ward to help us provide specialist care to patients with life threatening liver and gastroenterology problems.
The estimated cost of this work is £50,000, which is where we need your help to raise the money.
If you know anyone who has suffered with liver or gastro problems, then you will know the impact of suffering this. To support the team, simply text GAST64 £5 to 70070 or donate via the team’s Just Giving page: www.justgiving.com/teams/GastroLiverWard
Help us to help our future patients – thank you.”
