Family Honours Father’s Legacy by Donating Monitor to Hearth Failure Team

30th August 2023

The Heart Failure Team in Lagan Valley Hospital have received an electronic blood pressure machine from the family of Mr William Acheson who sadly passed away in Lagan Valley Hospital. Mr Acheson had been looked after by the Heart Failure Team for many years and the family wanted to show their appreciation to the team for the outstanding care and treatment they provided.

This thoughtful donation will enhance care to patients with heart-related conditions. Heart failure affects a significant portion of the population and accurate monitoring of blood pressure is critical in managing this condition effectively.

Presenting the equipment, Mr Acheson’s daughter, Sharon McDonald said, “We were honoured to present the Heart Failure Team with a blood pressure machine as they were so good to Daddy and he was so fond of them all. We were so glad that a part of him is helping other people with the same illness. You are all simply angels!”

Thanking the family for their kind donation, Heart Failure Nurse Specialist, Grainne Toal added, “We are very grateful to Mr Acheson’s family for their generosity.  This blood pressure machine will play a pivotal role in our efforts to monitor and manage the health of our patients with heart failure.”
