GoG ICU Feedback – August

14 August – Dr Manoj is a big fan of the GOGs and all they do to enhance the patient experience.

13 August – Jane our Pallative Care Co ordinator has definitely got the GOG bug.
She often gifts a GOG blanket to the patients in her care.
Today the beautiful blanket was chosen with care and love.

11 August – Thank you GoGs for all your hard work making the beautiful comfort care goods.
Today I restocked our cupboards from your working bee.
On behalf of our staff we really value the time and effort you put into every item.
These goods compliment the exemplary care we try to achieve.
Thank you from all of us in ICU.

Amanda – It’s a delight to make items for an organisation that’s so organised (thank you, Mary Barlow!) and that’s giving us real time feedback (Kath and Tess etc). It makes all the difference!

9 August – Our lovely Nurse Manager Lola gifted the beautiful heart pillow to a patient having surgery on his Birthday.
It certainly made him smile!

4 August – Miss Lolly was officially adopted this week by a young man who told me Miss Lolly was Sponge Bob Square Pants Nana.
He was taking her home to look after his Sponge Bob!

4 August – ‘Twinkle’ was adopted today and complemented this beautiful purple blanket that captured the eye of it’s new recipient.This lovely lady was having a bad day and feeling very sad and lonely being far from her home. A visit with Ruby and a touch of GOG magic with a little Twinkle changed her mood. Just laughed at Twinkle and loved her purple blanket and beanie so much.
She said just seeing colour and sparkle lifted her mood.
Well done team  X

4 August – Visiting the patients on our therapy dog round we meet many patients who wanted to feedback their gratitude to the GOGs.
The lovely lady that received this blanket has been making blankets for the Neonatal Intensive Care unit for nearly 20 years but this was the first time in her life she has received a knitted blanket.
As a fellow crafter she shared the message of how important it is to feedback to the volunteers and it’s the staff feedback from the NICU that has kept her knitting for 20 years.
She loved the blue colours in this blanket and wanted to pass on her appreciation.
Looks like Ruby likes it too. X

Beanie Delivery

With this icy cold weather settling in, these two bags of beautiful beanies just cried out to be taken to where they will be needed most over the coming days! ICU and A and E often see an influx of people who are sleeping rough requiring medical treatment at these times. Being able to hand out a beanie to them before they leave is another way GoG likes to support TCH to support our local community. Thank you to all the Goodeze who rose to the occasion when the call for adult beanies was put out! You’re all super stars!Β πŸ€©πŸ€©πŸ’–
