Fundraiser To Thank Shaftesbury Hospital And Medical Centre Staff

A retired Shaftesbury teacher has been so impressed by Shaftesbury Hospital and Abbey View Medical Centre he has launched an online appeal to buy them hampers.

Deane Gardiner says clinicians have helped him with his recent medical issues. And local NHS staff have been very supportive of his wife, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.

Deane has become frustrated with venomous comments about our town’s health care workers on social media, particularly on the Nextdoor website. He says he wanted to share his positive experiences.

You can donate to Dean’s appeal here.
