Paediatric Silent Saw for the Fracture Clinic
Some of the youngest patients at West Suffolk Hospital will benefit from a silent paediatric saw thanks to the fundraising of a local managing director.
Andy, 52, the managing director of Langham Pensions and Investments, said: “I wanted to raise money for something local and something we all have a connection with and the Hospital was a perfect fit.”
Shelley Jarrod, senior orthopaedic practitioner, said the saw will also be a massive benefit when caring for babies and children with autism.
She said: “We cannot thank Andy enough for supporting the fracture clinic in this way.
“We find some children are scared by the noise of our existing casting saw when they are having their cast taken off. This can also mean an ordeal for the parents so this silent saw will make a big difference from day one.”
