Book Break

Jolt at Oswestry share details of their Spring Wellbeing activities starting with Book Break on 5th January. Being together, working together and learning new skills helps our wellbeing and mental health. Come and join in!

On Saturday 5th January from 1100-1230 at 17, Cross Street, Oswestry, SY11 2NF will be the first Book Break for 2019. Held on the first Saturday of each month (2nd February and 2nd March), there is no charge.

It is not a book club, and it is not a study of literature. Shared Reading is simply a question of listening to a great story (and frequently a poem) and those who wish to chat about any thoughts they have as a result of the reading.

People with reading difficulties are of course very welcome.

Led by Bella Doolan & Helen Willows.

For further information please call Julie Turner on 01691 655140 or email: [email protected]

RJ & AH Hospital

Former Patients are being urged to return walking aids they no longer need.

The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital is urging former patients to return their unwanted walking aids.

The Physiotherapy Department have also started working in partnership with the Oswestry Cambrian Rotary Club to support the return of aids such as crutches and walking frames.

Members of the rotary club are able to pick-up any unwanted walking aids if a patient lives within a 15 mile radius and cannot get to the Oswestry-based hospital.

Cath Baldry, President of Oswestry Cambrian Rotary Club, said: “Earlier this year, we saw that RJAH had declared a crutch amnesty and were experiencing a real shortage of walking aids being returned.

“We thought about how we could support RJAH with this and also considered why patients who no longer need their walking aid could not return them.

“By offering a pick-up and drop-off service, more walking aids should be returned which will save the hospital significant amounts of money.”

Philip Hulse, Interim Therapies Service Manager, said: “Every week we hand out approximately 200 walking aids. Most of these are for short term use only and we do ask for them to be returned but a high proportion never are.

“As a result of this, we spend on average £25,000 every year replacing unreturned walking aids. This also delays the process of having the necessary equipment available for other patients.

“We’re so thankful to the Oswestry Cambrian Rotary Club for supporting us with this; we’re currently seeing too few walking aids returned and we would be extremely grateful if patients could get them back to us. All walking aids which are returned will be cleaned and re-conditioned ready to be used by another patient.

“If there are any former patients out there who still have their walking aid, please either drop it off at the Physiotherapy Department, Location 26, or get in touch with the Oswestry Cambrian Rotary Club.”

If anyone would like us to come and pick up their walking aid to return to RJAH, please phone 01691 650854 or email [email protected].”
