Our company Door Loading Services UK Ltd have made a kind donation to a new doctors’ mess at Telford’s Princess Royal Hospital as a thank you for the care given to our children following an horrific quad bike accident.
The new doctors’ mess was officially opened on Thursday and replaces an outdated facility based in a bungalow outside the main hospital building.
Rob and myself Burnadette McYoung, who own Door Loading Services UK Ltd in Telford, have donated roller shutters to the new mess as a thank you for the care given to our son Jay’D, 11, and our daughter Kendra, 8, at the PRH after the accident in 2014, which left Jay’D fighting for his life.
We can only thank the NHS and the staff at PRH for their hard work, dedication, commitment and long hours they put in to help their patients.
As our business in Telford specialises in manufacturing, installation, servicing and repairs of industrial doors, we felt this would be an excellent opportunity to give back to our community by supporting our local NHS Hospital after our son Jay’D sustained a serious head injury and broke all his facial bones in several places.
Since the accident both Jay’D and Kendra still attend PRH on regular occasions.
“Jay’D will start secondary school in September and Kendra will start year four.
“They are now both thriving at school and both love their outdoor activities.”
The Shropshire Star Reported:
Dr Jenni Rowlands, director for postgraduate education at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH), which runs PRH, said: “We are incredibly grateful to all those who have worked so hard to make this a reality.
“We would also like to thank Rob and Burnadette McYoung who have kindly donated roller shutters as part of this project and CLC Group for their kind donation of a television.
“We really do value our doctors – and all of our staff – and we know that this welcoming and dedicated area will make such a difference to their working lives.”
The new mess is in addition to the ongoing refurbishment of six doctors’ houses at the PRH which will each accommodate four doctors and will be provided for free to foundation year one doctors and other specialities which are hard to recruit to.
The housing project, which is being spearheaded by Telford & Wrekin Council, has seen the support of the community who responded to a DIY SOS-style appeal for help.
