Prime charity quiz night 2016
As part of our continued support of Birmingham Children’s Hospital last night Prime Accountants Group hosted a charity quiz night. The night was well attended with 19 teams of professional contacts and clients being helped (or hindered) by Prime staff
A big congratulations goes to SWEDE F.A from Handelsbanken who finished 1st place.
Of course the big winner was always going to be the hospital with another £2,000 being raised and the hospital sent the message below to explain where are donations go.
"Birmingham Children’s Hospital provides the widest range of children’s health services for young patients from Birmingham, the West Midlands and beyond, with over 257,000 patient visits every year.
One of just four standalone children’s hospitals in the UK, Birmingham Children’s Hospital is a world leader in paediatric healthcare, delivering some of the most advanced treatments, complex surgical procedures and cutting edge research and development.
The hospital has 15 wards, 14 theatres and the largest children’s Intensive Care Unit in the UK, with 31 beds and 260 nurses. The hospital also boasts 34 specialties, including liver transplant surgery, cardiac surgery, burns, major trauma, craniofacial surgery, blood and marrow transplantation, specialised respiratory and dermatology, neurology, cystic fibrosis, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.
The support the hospital receives makes a huge difference to the lives of our brave children and their families as we continue our plans to improve our facilities – enabling us to treat even more children from the West Midlands and around the country.
Every day up to 20 CT scans are carried out at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. A CT scan for a child can be scary, intimidating and very loud and many of the children have to come back repeatedly due to their conditions. This year proceeds from the event will go towards creating a ‘Sensory Suite’ in the scanner room - this ground breaking, state-of-the-art multi-sensory environment includes colour changing LED lights, speakers for music/sounds and an LED ceiling screen to display images or film – allowing both the child and parent to feel at ease and the clinical teams to carry out the CT scan quickly, effectively and reduce procedure time having a massive impact on the experience of patients who are coming back to the hospital time after time."
On behalf of everyone here at Prime we would like to thank everyone who attended or made generous donations, your support is appreciated.
