Mid Yorkshire Hospitals benefit from Sovereign Health Care donation

  The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust has received a generous donation of £8,000 from Bradford-based cash plan provider Sovereign Health Care.

The donation will be used towards supporting patients and their families during their time in hospital at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust.

The Trust also received £8,000 from Sovereign Health Care last year, and the money was used towards providing a more dignified and supportive experience for relatives after they have been bereaved. The donation also supported a conference held in January earlier this year for staff working in roles that bring them into contact with patients.

David Melia, Director of Nursing and Quality, at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust said: “We would like to thank Sovereign Health Care for another generous donation. We will use this money towards supporting our patients and their families, to try and make their time with us in hospital a little more comfortable and pleasant as possible. The donation will also help to support our nurses with further education.”

Russ Piper, Chief Executive of Sovereign Health Care, said: “We’re proud of our established record of supporting NHS Trusts in Yorkshire and long may this continue. The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust is essential in delivering much-needed care in the Wakefield and surrounding districts, and we’re delighted to provide this useful grant to further its vital work.”
