Comfort Exeter

 

Comfort Exeter is a project set up by staff from our Emergency Department to help vulnerable patients.

We provide clothing and essential items, kindly donated by local organisations and individuals.

More on what we do

The project aims to improve the care received by patients while in our department but also when they leave hospital.

Our clothing bank supplies key items of clothing for patients whose own clothes may have had to be removed or cut away while receiving treatment. Not all patients have family or friends to assist them while they are in the Emergency Department. A difficult and often distressing time can be made much easier for a patient if we can help them replace their clothes.

The comfort bags we put together help patients who have slightly greater needs and have little or no support elsewhere. A small bag of essential items can help provide them with comfort and dignity.

Items in the bag include: thermal socks, wet wipes, tissues, toothbrush and toothpaste, soap and female sanitary products. There is also information about local services, such as soup kitchens and where to access them.
