Sintons becomes corporate supporter of the Our Hospitals Charity
Law firm Sintons is giving its backing to a charity which supports the life-saving work and life-changing rehabilitation of the South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The Trust supports more than one million patients across Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland, Hambleton & Richmondshire and North Yorkshire. Among its key locations is the James Cook University Hospital major trauma centre and its nationally-acclaimed spinal injury unit.
Sintons, whose Neurotrauma team works closely with specialist medics at James Cook, has become a corporate supporter of the Our Hospitals Charity, which raises vital funds to help sustain and grow the work of the Trust.
The Neurotrauma team works nationally supporting clients who have sustained life-changing injury, particularly brain and spinal cord injury, and supports them and their families from the very earliest days post-trauma in rebuilding their lives and accessing the rehabilitation that will help them do that.
Andrew McGowan, head of Neurotrauma at Sintons, said: “The South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust comprises an array of vital NHS resources, which are lifelines within their communities. The James Cook University Hospital is known nationally for its work in major trauma and spinal cord injury specialism in particular, and we have seen first-hand how our clients have received life-saving, life-changing care and rehabilitation from its hugely committed team. This is an absolutely crucial first step in rebuilding their lives.
“By becoming a corporate supporter, we hope we can play some part in sustaining this amazing work through the fundraising of the Our Hospitals Charity. We are very pleased to be associated with such a great charity, which is supporting a very dynamic NHS Trust, and together play a vital role in people’s lives, both everyday and in times of the most acute trauma.”
