With invaluable support from our own communities, the Health Tree Foundation charity works in partnership with the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust. Your help means we can provide acute hospital and community services to a population of over 400,000 people across North and North East Lincolnshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire
All three of the hospitals within Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Trust are incredibly important to every individual in our region. The amazing teams we work with are there for better or worse, sharing our joy in happy times and helping us through the bad. They are the heartbeat of our community, and play a hugely important role in all of our lives
At the Health Tree Foundation we want to ensure that each and every time someone walks through the hospital doors – whether for emergency or planned treatment – the best available equipment is waiting for them, in a comfortable and welcoming environment.
The projects we fund through your continued generosity improve the hospitals themselves, support the research that will deliver the treatments of tomorrow, enable staff to benefit from specialist medical training, and install state-of-the-art equipment and community services across our region. Even by making the smallest changes across the regions we serve, we can make the biggest differences together.
An example of what we do
Many patients with dementia often feel confused, isolated or agitated. Health Tree Foundation support patients by providing specialist equipment such as the RITA machines. RITA help patients with reminiscing therapies and distraction techniques:
“On the Stroke Unit we have numerous cognitive impaired patients. RITA helps with invoking memories and gives patients focus. Patients can watch old films, listen to historical news reels, famous sporting events as well as view family photos and listen to recorded messages from home to help reassure the patients. Thank you Health Tree Foundation”
