Dolphin Head Group is proud to support the Frimley Park Hospital - Run Frimley 2017

Runners from Dolphin Head completed the 10km run on Sunday April 30th in support of the Stroke Appeal at Frimley Park Hospital. Dolphin Head were delighted to be asked to be one of the corporate sponsors.

We would like to share some of the key facts and figures with you below.

 A stroke is not something you prepare for.

 

1,400 patients expected to visit the stroke unit in 2017.

More than 50% of stroke victims require on-going care over months or years.

Strokes usually come unexpectedly and can be life-changing events. Patients may spend weeks or even months on the Stroke Unit. Your support can help to provide patients and staff with the tools that they need to get better faster and to do so in the most comfortable way possible at an incredibly difficult time.

Whilst stroke is the biggest cause of disability in the elderly,  1 in 150 strokes happen to people under the age of 20, we want to make sure we the best facilities for patients of all ages. 

What will your support help to provide?

We want to extend the space we have so that patients can have better access to therapies to aid their recovery.  This will include outdoor facilities (special paving, raised flower beds and steps) that will help to improve the patients’ mobility and provide a more interesting form of exercise and environment for the patients.
