TIU thanked by family of popular Elm man

Nurses at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital have been thanked for their care of a popular man from Elm.

Kenneth Lewis Rogers (85) had been treated by the medical staff at The Treatment Investigation Unit (TIU) for six months. Sadly he died in January this year.

Mr Rogers’ Chidlren Andrew Rogers and Susan Hills raised £500 by organised a collection at the funeral and garage sale for the unit.

Patients receive up to 50 different procedures, including blood transfusions and diagnostic tests, at the nurse-led unit.

Mr Rogers’ son Andrew has presented a cheque to Constance Gaan, Christine Emerson and Hannah Kendle.

He said: “They were brilliant looking after my father so we wanted to give something back.”
