We have invested £23,328 into 162 blood pressure monitoring mobile roll stands for wards across Furness General Hospital and the Royal Lancaster Infirmary. 

Existing blood pressure units in our hospitals were fixed to the walls of wards, however now they will become completely mobile, enabling clinical staff to spend more time with the patients.

Sue Smith, Executive Chief Nurse and Deputy Chief Executive, UHMBT, said,

“The use of manual sphygmometer – the type of blood pressure monitoring now in place at UHMBT – is considered the gold standard for patient monitoring. I am thrilled that all of the units are now being used in our clinical areas on a daily basis to complete the patient observations, and would like to thank Bay Hospitals Charity and their supporters for their kindness and generosity.”
