Whip Street purchase Airglove machine for the Woolverstone Macmillan Centre at Ipswich Hospital

Posted on: December 16th 2019    •    Posted in: Charity Work

We’re delighted to have funded three new Airglove air warming machines for East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust’s (ESNEFT) oncology ward at Ipswich Hospital.

Used to help patients receiving chemotherapy, the Airglove comfortably and quickly warms the patient, to make cannulation easier and more comfortable. By warming the arm, veins are raised making it much more likely to cannulate first time.

Airglove: air warming system for venous access

The first department at ESNEFT to purchase this equipment, the staff are looking forward to using it on their patients.

This is not the first machine bought for the hospital by Whip Street Motors. Last year, our donation helped to buy a Versalite Meddrawer Infinity Workstation to enable staff to work freely around the department, with constant access to notes and information.

In 2017, we helped the unit to buy an observation machine with another donation.

Our owner, Charlie Baker said: “Christmas is a time of giving, and we’re proud that we’re able to give something back to our local communities and in particular Ipswich Hospital at this festive time.

The nurses said this machine will make a lot of difference to their patients and we’re delighted to have helped purchase them.”

Just wanted to acknowledge the great work done by the guy who collected my old car today.I thought I could push it out of a difficult back driveway area, but underestimated the weight of the car and level of ground. In my day work I work with a lot of tradesmen and I was expecting huffing and puffing and the sucking of teeth that you get from tradesmen and utilities when the jobs not as easy as first thought, but your guy said "Let's have a go". He managed to get through a seriously narrow gap on a tight turn and winch the car out! Very polite and professional. I appreciate the effort. Please pass this on to him as he's done a great job.Many thanks,Nick.

I called up looking for new wheels for my car, the lady I spoke to was helpful and called back within an hour to say that they had some suitable bits. They were quick to take the wheels off the car and it was all very quick and painless. Plus it was cheap! they were also very honest about the condition of the wheels, telling me that I would need new tyres. will definitely use them again :)
