Havens Hospice have been given two new syringe drivers by the Lions Club of Leigh-on-Sea, enabling them to offer more patients a wider choice of treatment.
Tim Watts, Leigh Lions’ Community Chairman said,
“After a talk given by Vanessa Longley of Havens Hospice about their work and plans for the New Fair Havens development, the Club were keen to support them by providing medical equipment that could be used now and in the future. Havens suggested a syringe driver, and we were delighted to be able to provide two.”
A syringe driver delivers a steady flow of injected medication continuously under the skin, and is a very reliable way to control symptoms. Using one can be an alternative to having regular, repeated injections, which can restrict what a person can do and where they can go.
