Donations have contributed significantly to the development of the facilities and purchase of equipment in CS over the last 23 years. The major building upgrade undertaken in 2013 was supported by donations and legacies. A back up generator, specialized profiling beds, overhead tracking to enable hoisting, syringe drivers to enable comfortable end of life care have all been supported by your donations.
