Doing our bit during the COVID-19 pandemic

Helping Children's Hospices Across Scotland.

For over twenty years, CHAS (Children’s Hospices Across Scotland) has been offering a full family support service for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions.

This includes palliative care, family respite and support – through their hospices, homecare services and hospital presence.   Although the coronavirus pandemic has brought about an extraordinary and challenging time for CHAS, they remain committed to supporting children and families who need them now more than ever.

Occupational Health services provider, Duradiamond Healthcare, is delighted to be in a position to donate much-needed high-quality face masks to the charity.  Two hundred masks, which are crucial to the care of CHAS’s ventilated children, were delivered directly to CHAS at Robin House by the Duradiamond Healthcare team, Nathan Edgar & Morag Barrie, on Saturday 9th May.

Nicky Bridges, Clinical Nurse Manager at CHAS Robin House, said: “We are truly overwhelmed by the support we’ve had from so many individuals and organisations during this turbulent time.  We are particularly grateful to the many organisations and individuals who have donated much needed Personal Protective Equipment to our hospices.  On behalf of everyone from CHAS, I’d like to thank Duradiamond Healthcare for the facemasks they have kindly donated to Robin House.  We cannot thank them enough for helping us to continue to deliver a vital service to the children and families across Scotland that need us.”
