Patients in Ward 6 at Royal Victoria Hospital enjoyed an afternoon tea party to mark the anniversary of the founding of the NHS.
Patients and relatives were invited to join their very own NHS Big Tea Party on Friday 5 July in Ward 6 where they were treated to a buffet and entertainment.
The staff, with support from patient and their families, organised the afternoon tea party, raffle and tombola which raised £139 for the ward’s patient comfort fund.
The afternoon’s entertainment was provided free of charge by Dundee singer Paul Sullivan who sang a variety of well known songs including those by Frank Sinatra and Leo Sayer.
Senior charge nurse Rebecca Randford, said, “I would like to thank all who supported our NHS Big Tea Party and say a huge thank you to NHS Tayside catering team who provided our buffet.
“This event was a real team effort and I would like to give a special mention to Paul Sullivan for providing the afternoon’s excellent entertainment. We were really touched by the generosity of patients and relatives who supported our raffle and tombola by not only donating items but also buying raffle tickets. All money raised will be donated to ward 6 patient comfort fund for the benefit of our patients.
“We all had a wonderful day and it meant so much to the staff to see our patients and their families really enjoying themselves.”
