NEWS

Clinicians at Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield have offered their heartfelt thanks to Morgan Sindall, following the Midlands-headquartered contractor’s donation of medical equipment to the cardiology department.

Morgan Sindall has donated a non-invasive vital sign blood pressure monitor, which will be used in numerous clinical situations and help the hospital meet the needs of its growing patient base.

By way of thanks, clinicians from the cardiology department arranged to deliver a talk on heart health to staff and children at the nearby Jaffray Centre.

The facility is a referral unit which supports pupils with a range of behavioural, emotional, and social difficulties.

Morgan Sindall is currently on site delivering a £1.8m refurbishment of the centre for Birmingham City Council.

The construction and infrastructure company is carrying out renovation of the internal areas, reconfiguration of the existing floor layout to form a gym area, and fitting out the food technology and design technology rooms.

It is also renovating the tiled roof and carrying out extensive masonry repairs to the existing façade.

Work began at the start of the summer and is expected to be completed by the end of September this year. [2018]

Brian Wiley, senior site manager at Morgan Sindall, said: “At Morgan Sindall, all of our construction work is underpinned by a drive to deliver real social value to the communities in which we work. The hospital is key to local people and provides life-saving treatment every single day. It’s great to be able to contribute to it through the donation of this equipment.

“It’s doubly gratifying that we were able to connect the hospital and the Jaffray Centre. The talk was an effective way to engage with the students and raise awareness of importance of healthy hearts and lifestyles.”

Lorraine Ricketts, Head Cardiac Physiologist, Good Hope Hospital said: ‘’Morgan Sindall is dedicated to urban regeneration and investments delivering projects that make a real difference to the community. They have further shown their commitment to the local community by providing our cardiology department with a portable blood pressure monitoring device to help us deliver improved patient care.

“This device will be used in various clinical situations and enable us access to equipment that meets the needs of our ever-expanding number of patients.’’

Jaswinder Didially, Head of Education Infrastructure at Birmingham City Council, said: “Morgan Sindall has delivered a number of school buildings as part of our additional places programme. The refurbishment of Jaffray Centre has been planned to ensure the education of some of our most vulnerable and hard to reach pupils is not disrupted unduly.

“We are also impressed with their adherence to the Birmingham Business Charter for Social Responsibility which not only benefits the school but also has a positive impact on the local community.”
