We help to provide safe and comfortable slippers for those patients who arrive without them, perhaps because they have been admitted in an emergency and have no one to bring some in.
“When people come into hospital they can tend to spend too much time in bed. This can lead to them becoming less independent and delay their recovery. We are keen to help patients get moving as soon as possible. In order to move safely, people need to be wearing well fitted shoes or slippers. Sometimes people have come into hospital without safe footwear, and it is important that we are able to provide the correct ones. Wearing safe footwear not only helps to prevent falls when in hospital, but also helps patients to feel more confident when they moving around.”
