Boost for Stockport's neuro-rehabilitation centre

The Devonshire Centre for neuro-rehabilitation is over £1300 better off following a donation from a former patient.


Tony Hatton from Stockport spent a few months at the centre following a stroke.  He was so delighted with the results of his treatment that he has been on a fundraising campaign ever since.  Tony and his friend Jim Cunningham, presented the Centre with a cheque for over £1300 following a fundraising night at his local Conservative Club.  Tony has also raised money by taking part in a sponsored swim, which was part of his rehabilitation programme!


Specialist physiotherapist at the Devonshire Centre, Mike Gavin, comments:  “We are always delighted to receive money from ex-patients and Tony is a real character, always popping in to see us and tell us how well he is doing. We will put the money towards buying some new recreational or therapy equipment for patients to help them with their recovery.” 


Part of Stockport NHS Foundation Trust, the Devonshire Centre is a purpose built development on the site of Cherry Tree hospital which enables people who have suffered severe brain injuries, haemorrhages and multiple sclerosis to be rehabilitated to their full potential.  The multidisciplinary team care for a large number of patients in the younger age bracket of between 20-40 years old who have received injuries from road traffic accidents or assaults.  The work of the team is to help them regain the skills to lead an independent life again which on average can take up to three months to achieve.
