Sintons’ healthcare and neurotrauma teams partner with the Newcastle Hospitals Charity
The charity helps patients, staff and visitors at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary and the Freeman Hospital, including the Great North Children’s Hospital and the Northern Centre for Cancer Care.
The teams’ donation will be used to provide Christmas decorations on wards and to fund festive activities and gifts for patients.
Emma McQuitty, fundraising coordinator for Newcastle Hospitals Charity, said: “It’s always hard spending time in hospital, our charity works to make the experience a little easier. We’re really grateful to Sintons’ healthcare and neurotrauma teams for partnering with us once again for the festive period. The funds raised will help in bringing some much needed festive cheer to our patients, visitors and staff spending time in our hospitals over the festive season.”
Kate Oliver, who is a Partner in Sintons’ Neurotrauma team, and who specialises in acting for individuals who have sustained life-changing injuries, explained why the teams chose this charity in particular: “Every day, we work with people who are affected by serious injuries, and we see the impact this has on their lives. By partnering with the Newcastle Hospitals Charity, we can play a small part in helping more people who, like our clients, might be facing a stay in hospital.”
Amanda McCabe, Partner and Head of NHS Healthcare at Sintons, added: “Our hospitals do amazing work and give people in our region the best possible care, but we all know that being in hospital at Christmas is not what anyone wants.
“The Newcastle Hospitals Charity makes a real difference to patients and staff over the festive period and we’re happy to be able to support them in their work.”
