NHS charity funds toiletries for in-patients across the Hywel Dda University Health Board

THANKS to donations, Hywel Dda Health Charities has been able to purchase toiletries for in-patients across all Hywel Dda University Health Board sites.


The toiletries include toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, shampoo and conditioner.


Many patients that are admitted to hospital don’t have the financial means, or family support, to purchase essential hygiene products.


Honey Owens, Patient Experience Apprentice, said: “We are very grateful that charitable funds has enabled us to purchase these toiletries for in-patients across the health board.


“Having these toiletry items for patients is a huge benefit, they are able to practice good hygiene during their stay which can help them mentally and physically.”


Nicola Llewelyn, Head of Hywel Dda Health Charities, the official charity of Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: “The support of our local communities enables us to provide services over and above what the NHS can provide in the three counties of Hywel Dda and we are extremely grateful for every donation we receive.”
