Two dedicated hospital charities have donated a total of 50 syringe drivers worth £50,000 to Epsom and St Helier hospitals, with 22 going to the former and 28 to the latter.

Equipment designed to help ease the symptoms of terminally ill patients has been donated to Epsom Hospital.

Syringe drivers continuously administer painkillers or medication that suppresses nausea and vomiting, as well as other symptoms.

Epsom and St Helier hospitals have been handed a total of 50 such devices worth £50,000, with 22 going to the former and 28 to the latter.

The donation has come from two dedicated hospital charities – the St Helier and Sutton League of Friends and the Friends of Epsom and West Park.

Matthew Hopkins is the chief executive of Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust.

“Our League of Friends consistently show a true commitment to our patients, and this latest donation is just one small part of that,” he said.

“I would like to thank the charities, and each and every one of their volunteers for their tireless hard work.  They truly are a credit to our hospitals.”
