2020 has been a testing period for us all, producing uncertainty and, for many, creating immeasurable difficulty and loss. So to say thank you to NHS for their tremendous efforts throughout this tumultuous year, Allpack visited Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Christmas Eve morning to gift hampers to patients and staff.
Upon delivering Christmas gifts to the QE Centre for Clinical Haematology, Allpack managing director, George Clarke, met with department staff to thank them for their continued service in providing world class treatment and care.
Senior Sister at the QE Kimberley Macken commented: 'Staff working on the Haematology inpatient wards at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital are extremely grateful for the donations of the hampers. 2020 has been a very challenging year for us all! It’s the little things like this that help let the staff know that they are appreciated and add a little bit of festive cheer in the middle of the COVID pandemic.'
The hospital's haemotology centre, built in 2005 from funding secured by the charity Cure Leukaemia, is a leading research hub, delivering drug treatments and transplant therapies to patients with leukaemia, lymphoma and a number of rarer conditions.
Allpack would like to thank both University Hospitals Birmingham and the NHS for their continued efforts in supporting the national effort to tackle the coronavirus pandemic, and we wish their staff and patients a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
