Chair donated to ward at West Suffolk Hospital by former staff nurse

A former staff nurse at the West Suffolk Hospital, in Bury St Edmunds, has donated a specialist chair to F7 ward.

The £1,000 piece of equipment can also be used as a bed for patients and was given to the My WiSH Charity by Peter Brown.

He used to be a staff nurse on F7 but is now a lecturer in adult nursing at the University of Suffolk, in Ipswich.

His father John, who lived in Great Dunmow, Essex, died in 2016, and Peter said staff and the team on the ward were “very kind” to him following his father’s death and wanted to repay them for their kindness towards him.

So he decided to donate the money left to him by his father for the chair.

“I decided to get the specialist chair in memory of my dad and wanted it to be used on F7,” he added.
