Thanks to the donations via the Wolves Goalden Gate Superdraw, New Cross Hospital's maternity unit have improved their facility to help during the pandemic.
Over recent years, Wolves, through the club’s official draw, have raised an impressive £116,000 and the donations have come courtesy of the generosity of supporters partaking in the Goalden Gate.
With the donation, the maternity services department have purchased a monitor for the simulation training room, where staff can enhance and build on their skills and knowledge in patient care and safety.
As well as the monitor, the donations have managed to provide Ready Sleeper Beds which are beds for relatives, partners/birth partners to stay over-night with pregnant mother.
Leanne Bood, fundraising coordinator at The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust Charity, said: “We have managed to secure funding to support the complex social needs of vulnerable women that access the vulnerable women’s specialist midwifery team.
“For example, a pregnant homeless woman would be offered a hot meal and a drink by the team whilst waiting to access temporary accommodation. This enables the team to assess how she is doing and that she is safe and well.”
Kevin Kay, Wolves promotions manager, praised the New Cross Hospital staff, saying: “We are all very proud of our NHS staff, now more than ever, so it is so nice to see how much the donations the club raises through the Goalden Gate Superdraw make a difference to the hospital's maternity unit.”
