Appeal for Lichfield and Burntwood patients to return crutches

A hospital is asking people in Lichfield and Burntwood the chance to take part in a crutch amnesty.

The appeal is being made by Good Hope Hospital who want patients to return any disused crutches they have lying around the house.

Alan Baldwin, A&E manager at the hospital, said:

“Don’t be afraid to return your old crutches – we won’t be telling anyone off, but will just be very grateful for their return. We send patients home with these everyday and it is surprisingly rare that we get them back.

“The crutch amnesty will give people the chance to clear out the crutches that have been cluttering their home for months and will replenish our stocks here at Good Hope – so we’re all winners!”

Crutches can be returned to Good Hope A&E reception from August 27 to 30.
