Providing patient comforts

Thanks to your donations, Hywel Dda Health Charities supported the provision of five scalp cooling systems for patients on the chemotherapy units at Glangwili and Prince Philip hospitals.

Gina Beard, Lead Cancer Nurse, said: “We are grateful that donations have enabled us to continue to offer scalp cooling to patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment. Scalp cooling helps prevent hair loss and is effective for many patients.”

Nicola Llewelyn, Head of Hywel Dda Health Charities, the official charity of Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: “The support of our local communities enables us to provide services over and above what the NHS can provide in the three counties of Hywel Dda and we are extremely grateful for every donation we receive.”
