Staff raise funds by walking between three hospitals

Staff at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital have completed a fundraising challenge to raise money for their emergency department.


A team of 14 staff completed a 42-mile walk between Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s three hospitals to raise funds for new equipment.


The team had an early start, setting off from Andover War Memorial Hospital and walking to the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester and then back to Basingstoke.


Emergency department sister, Katie Scantlebury, organised the walk. She said: “It was more difficult than I think anyone had imagined. We were walking for 15 hours and the last four hours were dark and rainy, which made it even harder. We always strive to provide high-quality care for our patients, and the new high-tech equipment will be able to support us to always improve the care we provide.”

The team surpassed their target of £3,000 and the money will go towards a new monitor for the resuscitation bays. They are hoping to ultimately introduce four new monitors.
