Former patient donates crocheted face mask adapters for Kingston Hospital staff

9 July 2020

A local resident and former patient has donated handmade face mask adapters for staff at Kingston Hospital.

Joyce Bailey, aged 89, crocheted the adapters, which are designed to make face masks more comfortable to wear over long periods of time, at her home in Ham, and donated 40 to staff who have cared for her over recent years.

Louise Hogh, Consultant geriatrician and chief of medicine at Kingston Hospital, said: “We were delighted to receive these handmade donations from Joyce. The mask adapters are so useful for our staff, who are wearing masks at all times on the hospital premises, to protect our patients and visitors, and each other. Thank you Joyce, for thinking of us at this time.”
