Horley – Your Chance to Help our NHS

Can you sew or donate materials to make NHS Scrubs for Warwick Hospital?

This is a request from Jane Huskisson who writes:

‘My sister works at Warwick hospital.  She is helping gather materials to make PPE. If you have buttons (2-2.5cm), thin elastic and/or thin cotton fabric (cotton sheets are fine) to spare, I will happily take them and get them to my sister.’

Elastic needs to be 1.5-2.5cm wide, cotton fabric to be in light colours for gowns.

In order to contact Jane please call or text 07984 685127.

For information on how to make scrubs for NHS workers see PPE Info.

Warwickshire Scrubbers  is a Facebook Group for sewers and their helpers in Warwickshire creating mainly scrubs, bags and caps for local hospitals.

Also see UK Crafters – Oxfordshire and Central Hub which  was set up in response to the Australian bush fires. Now all attention is focused on the NHS and mainly making laundry bags etc. for Oxford University Trust Hospitals, including the Horton and JR.

Your Chance to give input to the NHS Consultation for Oxfordshire

This could have a significant impact on the future of the Horton Hospital

‘A number of the proposals will be of more interest to people living in the north of the county and neighbouring areas. Some of the proposals have a wider impact and so we are keen to encourage people from across Oxfordshire and surrounding areas to give their views. We also welcome the views of our voluntary sector partners, groups representing particular communities, other public bodies and staff in health and care organisations’.

The Oxfordshire’s health and care services – The Big Consultation – Phase 1 is available  here.

You can access the consultation documents here and an the online patient experience survey here.
