Thanks to generous donations, we have been able to fund a new Accuvein device to enhance patient care the Children's Inpatient Ward at University Hospital Lewisham.

The AccuVein machine is a handheld device that highlights veins, making cannulation (inserting a thin tube) easier, creating a less painful and stressful experience for babies and children when administering fluids, medications, or during blood sampling.

Sarah Derbel-Children's Inpatient Ward sister, said "The Accuvein will make a real positive difference to our patients experience. It will help make the process of cannulation easier and less stressful for the patients."

Our charity is committed to enhancing the experience for our patients at Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, we are delighted to support the children's departments with new equipment to ensure treatment for our patients is as painless as possible.
