PATIENT comfort is a main priority of the Scone United Hospital Auxiliary (SUHA).

And, they have been diligently raising funds to purchase much-needed equipment for Scott Memorial Hospital.

“Each year the hospital provides the auxiliary with a wish list of what is required,” SUHA president Helen Barwick said.

“Then we undertake several fundraisers to purchase them.”

Just recently, with money raised from community-backed donations, the Scone United Hospital Auxiliary bought a shower commode chair with a padded seat, and an electric mobile recliner chair.

“We are very proud of our little country hospital, and the small role our group plays in helping,” Mrs Barwick said.

“But, all of our efforts would not be possible without the generous donations from and the support of our great community.”

Acting Health Service manager Nicole Briggenshaw was quick to praise the SUHA.

“The auxiliary play a big role in our hospital and we are very appreciative of all of their efforts to provide Scott Memorial Hospital with high-quality equipment,” she said.
