We've funded new equipment for Milton Keynes Hospital Eye Clinic
From this month, young patients coming into Milton Keynes Hospital can benefit from a great addition to the eye clinic in the form of the iCare® tonometer.
The iCare® tonometer painlessly measures high pressure in the eyes of children (a possible symptom of glaucoma), rather than having them undergo a needless and more invasive procedure under general anaesthetic.
It can also be used for older patients who may get nervous or distressed during invasive procedures, such as people with dementia.
This piece of equipment was made possible thanks to hospital staff member James Cooney, who is passionate about making a difference to wards and departments around the hospital by fundraising for Milton Keynes Hospital Charity.
We are going green!
We are delighted to be named as a beneficiary of a brand new green initiative launching on July 15.
The new Recycle and Reward project, set up by Milton Keynes Council, encourages residents to play an interactive online game and raise money for charity at the same time.
The game has been launched in a bid to increase the amount of recycling and green bin use across Milton Keynes, and decrease the amount of black sack waste.
Residents can play this simple game which take just a few minutes to complete, and select which charity they wish to support. A donation of £1 is automatically made to that charity.
