The Norfolk Hospice Tapping House has been fortunate to receive a donation from the Heacham Group Practice Amenity Fund, to support patient care at the hospice. 

The Heacham Group have funded the purchase of a bladder scanner for the Hospice, which will primarily be used on the Dr Hugh Ford Inpatient Unit. The scanner is portable so can also be used by the Hospice at Home Team if required. The scanner will enable the nursing team to make much better decisions about urinary catheterisation and ongoing patient care.

Lyndsay Carter, Chief Executive at The Norfolk Hospice said,

I would like to thank the Heacham Group Practice Amenity Fund to helping us to secure this piece of specialist equipment which will allow us improve the quality of care for patients both at the Hospice and in their own homes nearing the end of life.
