A teenage patient at Colchester General Hospital has been gifted a life-saving piece of equipment.
Sixteen-year-old Renee Lewis-Driver suffers from a lung condition and she has been a long-term patient on the hospital’s children’s ward.
As Renee gets ready to move into adult care, she has been donated a saturation monitor, which measures a person’s oxygen levels.
The kit was presented to Renee, along with her mum, Stacey, by staff at Colchester Children’s Charity, which helps youngsters in the area and has made more than £75,000 in donations over the last year.
Liz Thomas, lead nurse for the transition team at Colchester General Hospital, said: We would like to say a big thank you to Colchester Children’s Charity for their generous donation.
