Fundraising continues for ICU kit

An appeal to buy some new technology for Kettering General Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is gaining momentum.

The hospital has raised £8,000 towards its £20,000 Intensive Voices Appeal target since its launch in March.

So far there have been a series of fundraising and awareness raising events and individual donations.

The Appeal s aim is to buy assistive communication devices similar to that used by world famous scientist Stephen Hawking.

These enable patients to communicate by using their eyes as a virtual  computer mouse to type messages  using shortcut symbols – on a computer screen which then speaks their message out loud.
