Vulnerable patients at Royal Bolton Hospital are having their wishes made true by the Enhanced Care and Support Team (ECaST).
The team ask patients to make a realistic wish and work to make it come true.
The wish is then hung up on a washing line – called the wishing washing line.
Wishes from patients so far include:
Toni Anderton, ECaST Senior Practitioner at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, said:
We want to make sure our vulnerable patients have the most comfortable stay in hospital, especially as the patients we work with are often here for an extended time.
“Even though their wishes may not seem that big, they can make such a big difference.
Angela Hansen, Deputy Chief Nurse at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, added:
All our staff work incredibly hard to provide the highest levels of care for our patients, putting them at the centre of the care they receive.
“Our ECaST team look after some of the most vulnerable people in our community and continually make a huge difference to their lives.
“I’m proud to call them colleagues.
