Dry July 2013 at Royal North Shore Hospital
NSCC at Royal North Shore Hospital is using support from Dry July 2013 to fund:
inpatient care packs
show bags (for patients’ children)
refreshments for patients
chair bed recliner
camcorder (for recording patient stories)
men’s health sessions
iPads for Patient Use at Northern Sydney Cancer Centre
What a hit these have been with our patients! Hundreds of hours of treatment are given in our cancer centre each year, and this last year our patients have been thankful for the opportunity to read, watch videos and stay in touch with their loved ones while receiving treatment.
Welcoming Patients to the Northern Sydney Cancer Centre
Dry July funds have been used for fresh flowers in the cancer centre’s main waiting area and colourful artwork in the main corridors. The paintings were done by a cancer survivor and former RNSH patient. Patients often comment on the difference such simple items can make; the hospital would not be able to afford these comforts otherwise.
