The Occupational Therapists get help with the rehabilitation of patients

Church Wilne Rotary Club recently presented a spade together with a cheque for £200 to Philippa Chapman, an Occupational Therapist at Ilkeston Community Hospital.

The money will be used to provide resources to assist rehabilitation and increase mobility enabling patients from the Erewash area to regain their independence, reduce falls and improve quality of life.

Philippa stated that "We are currently trying to set up some rehab groups, including a Gardening Group, which we hope will encourage patients to socially interact, regain skills, and take their mind off their pains and open their minds to making a change to improve their quality of life."

Church Wilne President Adrian commented that "Unfortunately, the NHS is unable to fund the resources required to run these groups - staff have been covering the costs out of their own pockets. Therefore, it is our pleasure to be able support Philippa and her colleagues in this way. I'm sure our donation will go a long way to making a difference to the lives of the patients."
