Boosting the morale of patients and staff is one of our key goals. As part of this work we organise celebrity visits to the hospital during which our special guests are able to meet patients, their loved ones and hospital staff.
We are hugely grateful to celebrities who take time of their busy schedules to visit the hospital and attend our events. We’re always keen to hear from anyone who might be able to help with this so please get in touch if you can.
“Meeting Olivia and Josh really lifted my spirits during my treatment. To have two such famous people visit their local hospital was amazing, it created a huge level of excitement across the Pembroke Unit and had a lasting benefit. It gave me something to tell family and friends about, and I have a lovely photograph to keep.”
Gayle Logan, Pembroke Unit patient
“We’ve met patients and staff in the neonatal baby unit, amazing babies and amazing mummies. The whole thing’s been a proper honour. We feel really privileged to be able to do it. There’s a lot to be said for the Stars Appeal and the local community raising money. There’s a real feeling of love and I’ve had a very lovely morning. This was really beautiful, we do such a frivolous silly job and to get to come and just meet people is one of the great side effects of the job that we do. Thank you for having us. We’ll come back!”
“The visit gave everyone a real buzz. It made me and my colleagues feel incredibly valued and appreciated but more importantly it made our patients feel special and really boosted their morale.”
