Hotel supports Hospice with donation for recliner chairs

Crerar Trust has donated £5,000 to St Andrew’s Hospice to fund 20 specialist recliner chairs at the charity’s care unit in Lanarkshire. The support was celebrated during a special cheque presentation from Graham Urquhart, General Manager of GoGlasgow Urban Hotel, on behalf of Crerar Trust to the Hospice on 13 May2016.   

The existing recliner chairs are old and no longer fully meet the needs of the patients and an alternative was sought to meet various different needs of the patients. The new recliner chairs are safe, robust, functional and fully compliant with safety standards and legislation. They have been designed around the principles of patient safety, infection control, easy moving and handling, easy to clean and efficient servicing. The chairs have various specialist functions, nurse/patient controls and are very easy to use. They have interchangeable posture support back resulting in the back being quickly and easily changed to suite each patients changing needs.

Crerar Trust Chairman and Hotel Group CEO Paddy Crerar said: "Crerar Trust is delighted in every way to support St Andrew’s Hospice. Crerar Hotels Trust wanted to ensure that the high standards of care and comfort given by the hospice are supported with safe and functional equipment so that they can continue to make a difference to the lives of the patients and families in need.”
