The Ormskirk & District General Hospital is a large facility serving West Lancashire including Ormskirk and Southport. The Paediatric Ward and Assessment Units treat over 4,848 children each year. A number of these children will need intravenous medication administered as part of their treatment.

A syringe driver will administer intravenous drugs in a safe and controlled manner which helps to reduce tissue reactions and the risk of overdose. It also increases patient comfort as there is less irritation and stinging. The community nurse team also use the devices to dispense essential medication to children in their home environment so they don’t need to attend hospital so frequently.

The hospital needs more Syringe drivers as they are in great demand and the stock they have needs updating. They have asked MedEquip4Kids to provide extra units to ensure that the patients receive the necessary medications promptly thereby improving their recovery time. We have agreed to fundraise for them one at a time until the demand is met.

The total cost of supplying one Syringe Driver is £1,568.84

“This donation has enabled us to use more varied and useful therapeutic toys and games when working with children and young people with mental health difficulties, as well as using extra clinic rooms which are now more child-friendly. This has helped reduced anxiety about coming to CAMHS and meant that family therapy can be done. Both parents of a 10 year old boy can now attend with their 5 year old as the youngest child can play with our new resources in the waiting room or clinic space. The 10 year old benefited from therapeutic games about thoughts/feelings and we were also able to observe imaginative play for assessment.”
