Training provider Learning Curve Group (LCG), have donated 29 digital tablets and PPE to South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to support staff and patients during to the coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier on in the pandemic The Learning Curve Group Charity Foundation decided to help ease the pressure on those worst affected groups and charities in County Durham and donated the entire funds of over £20k to support front-line community groups as the uncertainty continued.
Alongside the tablets, Learning Curve Group’s academies have donated PPE, too. Their Sunderland Construction Academy and Hartlepool Beauty Academy donated masks and gloves to a local GP practice in Sunderland as well as South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Brenda McLeish, CEO for Learning Curve Group, said: “It was a privilege to be able to support NHS patients at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust with the donation of 29 tablets. There’s never been a more challenging time and being able to help connect patients to their families is the least we could do.”
Beverley Smith, of South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Thanks to the donations of tablets from Learning Curve Group, patients are able to communicate to those who can’t visit. What some would see as small gestures have such a huge impact on our patients and I can’t thank them enough for their amazing donation of iPads for our patients to use. So appreciated.”
