Cannula sleeves improve the patient experience

18 February 2019

Thank you to Lynne and Heidi from Handmade for Dementia who have donated these fantastic cannula sleeves for our patients.

They will be used in our Emergency Departments and Older People's wards.

The knitted sleeves improve the patient’s experience while in hospital by giving them something to fiddle with, this can help with anxiety and also reduces the chance of them removing important cannulas in their arms.

If you’d like to get involved in making them you can join the Facebook group:
