hospitalchairsSix specialist hydraulic chairs purchased by the Friends of St Mary’s Hospital for £4,000 are proving to be popular with patients and staff in the Eye Department.

 The chairs provide access to specialist diagnostic ophthalmic tests for patients, who currently find it difficult to get up to equipment. Included among these are the elderly, those with poor mobility and some wheelchair users.

It is also of assistance to doctors doing tests, and reduces the chance of back trouble for nurses.
