Supporting Donegal patients and their families
Support Our Cause
The Friends of Letterkenny University Hospital have agreed to support the latest service development proposed by management in the hospital, namely the development of a Digital Theatre in the main theatre on Floor E. The Digital Theatre is the brainchild of Mr Kenneth Oaikenan, Consultant Surgeon. He has previously worked in this environment and says that it enhances patient safety, improves efficiency in theatre throughput and adds to governance for the Theatre Users Group. The first phase will cost €250,000 and all fund-raising events will be geared towards reaching this target.
This voluntary organisation, which was granted charitable status in 1995, has four main objectives:
to raise funds via charitable donations/fundraising to provide seed capital for the development of new services in LUH, secondly to facilitate voluntary work to augment ordinary hospital services, thirdly to respond to ad hoc requests from wards for assistance and finally to fund bus to transport patients from LUH to St Lukes Hospital in Dublin to receive radiotherapy treatment. The Friends have been responsible for raising in excess of €7 million from membership fees, donations, church gate collections and various fund-raising events throughout the North West since 1992.
