NHS Professionals supports Gold Dust


NHS Professionals (NHSP) is pleased to support Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust and the Gold Dust Appeal by presenting a cheque for £250.00.

NHSP recently carried out the annual client satisfaction survey for Trust users, including Ward Managers and Trust Leads, to feedback on the service they receive from us. This year we offered a £250.00 donation to a charity of choice when the survey was completed by the Trust Lead.

The Gold Dust Appeal is aimed at raising £100,000 to transform the children’s wards at Derriford Hospital to create a bright and welcoming environment, including tactile, colourful and interactive displays for patients and their families.

Karen Launder, Resourcing and Retention Manager, at Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust completed the survey and chose the Gold Dust Appeal to receive the funds.

Jules Shanbury, NHSP Client Relations Manager for the South West and Jackie O’Melia, Trust Liaison Coordinator for NHSP present the cheque to Anita Dykes, Matron for Paediatrics.

She said “I’d like to say a big thank you to members of NHSP and to Karen for choosing Gold Dust for this donation. Everyone so far is being thoughtful and generous and I would encourage anyone else to help us with activities and donations as we have a long way to go to reach our grand total.”

Jules said: “NHSP is really pleased to be able to support the Gold Dust Charity to make a difference to patients and their families, and to have an opportunity to further enhance the partnership we have with Plymouth Hospitals”.
