WiSH Upon a Star

WiSH Upon A Star logo

Although we only launched our WiSH Upon a Star appeal late 2017, the support it has already received has been fantastic. The Greyhound Public House in Ixworth, Nando's Bury St Edmunds, Neptune's Bury St Edmunds, County Upper School and Hobb's Bury St Edmunds are just a few of its wonderful supporters.

Donating to our WiSH Upon a Star appeal means areas caring for our young patients that often get overlooked when it comes to receiving donations can benefit. Our aim in creating this fund is to further enhance the care every single child visiting our hospital receives.

Here are just a few of the ways this appeal has already helped;

  • The labour suites were able to purchase new baby cots which are specifically targeted at caesarean section mums. After surgery they have very restricted movement and can’t always pick baby up without help from a member of staff. These new cots can come over the top on the bed, tilt and rise in height making everything much easier for our new mums.
  • We purchased an Accuvein for our children's outpatient department. The device shines a light on the patient highlighting their veins, making it much easier to take blood or cannulate our young patients.
  • Our Rainbow department were able to purchase a new saturation monitor. Also known as a pulse oximeter, this is a medical device that indirectly monitors the oxygen saturation of the child's blood.
