Glyn, who is a Co-Treasurer of NPKPA, joined other committee members Steve Joyce (Vice Chair) a2nd Julie Turner (Co-Treasurer) at the Renal Dialysis Unit to handover the ECG Machine. 

“I have been involved with the NPKPA since its inception in 2009, and have seen the fantastic Renal Unit at Welshpool Hospital evolve,” said Gyn. “Alongside this, our committee has worked tirelessly to support patients in assisting their comfort and wellbeing, as well as funding the purchase of key items of equipment.

“The new ECG Machine will be a fantastic resource, and the Committee are very pleased to continue to be able to contribute to the Unit in this way.”

New members and donations are appreciated and those interested should contact Julie Turner on 01938 554037 for more details.
