Thanks to funds raised through Dry July 2019, Liverpool Hospital will be able to purchase and install 20 Free to Air TV's for the Palliative Care Ward.
Providing free TV and entertainment to patients that are in hospital for long periods of time will assist distracting patients from their illness. Patients that stay for long periods of time on the ward can be financially impacted, with loved ones spending the last days, weeks or months with palliative patients, also not working have not been able to afford the high cost of pay TV. This will relieve the financial impact.
Currently, patients in palliative care have to pay a daily rate for access to free-to-air TV.
