Oliver Brown was born seven weeks early at Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in Wigan, weighing just 4lbs 4oz. Oliver spent his first two days in the Intensive Care Unit where he needed a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine to help him breathe, after which he was transferred to the High Dependency Unit. For a while he was also in an incubator, as his temperature kept dropping and he was jaundiced.

For a total of three weeks, Oliver received excellent round-the-clock neo natal care at the hospital. He’s now growing up to be a healthy, happy little boy thanks to the incredible support he received as a newborn baby.

Oliver’s mum Louisa says: “The nursing staff were absolutely brilliant. I couldn’t praise the whole unit enough. I’m diabetic and they even took care of me when I had a hypo one day. Thank you to all the staff and thank you to MedEquip4Kids for the equipment you have funded in Wigan over the years.”

“The switch adapted toys have been a wonderful addition to our school. Both staff and children were thrilled to have some new exciting resources. The children love the lights and movement many of these switch toys have and are highly motivated to explore and investigate how to make them work. They have been great for pupils to develop their understanding of cause and effect and we have also noticed improved concentration and engagement when using them. Often it can be difficult to find toys that are robust enough to withstand lots of heavy use AND be interesting and fun. These new resources tick all those boxes. They have made a noticeable impact on the children’s development in this area.”
