Would you like to join our ‘Twiddlemuffs’ campaign to help people living with dementia? Twiddlemuffs are sensory sleeves that are volunteers and supporters are making for patients so that they can keep their hands busy and are distracted from pulling at cannulas or drips.

Dementia Lead Jane Youell, who has been leading the campaign says “They are really useful as a distraction aid for patients who can put their hands inside the Twiddlemuff or on top to experience different textures”.

 

Each Twiddlemuff belongs to an individual patient and can be taken home with them when they are discharged from the hospital. As a result, there is a constant need for additional materials for new patients. To date we have had an overwhelming response from staff, members of the public and local organisations such as Hobbycraft who have all donated wool, buttons and buckles.

 

If you’re handy with sewing or knitting needles or have any of the above materials you would like to donate, please email Jane at jane.youell@mkuh.nhs.uk

  • THANK YOU TO STAFF ON THE NHS' 70TH BIRTHDAY

    This is a short message of thanks to staff at Milton Keynes University Hospital as we celebrate the 70th birthday of the NHS today.

    I hope you can all take a moment to have a break and reflect on the part you play in the service we are celebrating today.

    The NHS is a team of 1.5 million, a system, in which we all play an important part. To do our jobs well – whoever we are, and particularly if we have a leadership role - we are each dependent on a network of others in hundreds of different roles. Every member of the NHS team is as vital as the next and it is this co-operative, this family, that is part of what makes working in the NHS so special.
