Therapy Appeal

Therapy Appeal

Our Therapy Appeal provides unique and important equipment and facilities for medical staff and patients.

From speech and language, physical rehabilitation, trips and falls prevention, occupational therapy, stroke therapy, neurosurgery therapies, massage therapy, and more, the Appeal funds therapy equipment and services to benefit patients at St George’s and Queen Mary’s hospitals in south London and in the community.

Things like a yoga mat at £20, a massage session at £40, or one-to-one bedside music for a long stay patient for £50 – our Appeal focuses on anything that is ‘over and above’ normal provision that can help our amazing teams help even more patients.

Here are some of the areas we'd like to support:

Speech and Language 

Working with patients who have speech, language or voice problems, and helping those who have difficulty feeding and swallowing.

The Speech and Language Therapy department at the Wolfson Neurorehabilitation Centre provides intensive therapy to support those with changes to their communication due to neurological conditions such as stroke or traumatic brain injuries.

£4,893 will help to fund a ceiling mounted video camera system.

The use of video within therapy sessions allows the team toassess a patient’s performance in real life situations (such as having a conversation with a relative) and then monitor patient progress across time.  Videos also give patients the opportunity to self-review and improve tasks within sessions, increasing their ability to control and manage their own rehabilitation. 

This piece of equipment would allow the team to improve the picture and audio quality, making them more accessible for more patients.  It would also allow them to include the use of video in group therapy sessions.

We also want to offer a wide range of massage therapies to patients across both hospitals - including cancer patients.
