Nurses and their daughters will be swapping the ward for the pool aiming to not only go but swim that extra mile.
Staff, friends and family of Scotter ward are participating in a sponsored swim, aiming to raise money towards the refurbishment of the palliative care suite on the ward at John Coupland Hospital in Gainsborough.
Speaking about the swim, organiser and Clinical Nurse Educator at Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS (LCHS) Donna Phillips said: “We are all hoping to swim that extra mile for our patients, we really want to enhance the environment in which they will receive their care in the last few days or weeks of their life whilst with us on Scotter Ward.”
The swim, arranged to take place between 6pm and 7pm on Saturday, April 30 2016 at West Lindsey Leisure Centre Gainsborough.
Many people are already coming to show their support. Everyone is welcome.
