|What we accept||
Un-perfumed/unscented preferred where possible.
Quite often patients may arrive without a wash bag or with items missing from their bag. Being able to provide these items gives the patient and their family one less thing to worry about at such a difficult time.
For infection control reasons, certain items cannot be used by another patient once it has been used so we need a steady supply to continue offering this standard of care.
|Accept part-used products?||No|
