Mother says thank you to unit for saving son’s life

A mother from Pott Row has donated £500 to say thank you to the doctors and nurses who saved the life of her son.

Oliver Warner was treated in The Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s Critical Care Unit in 2014 after an accident in which he ended up in a ditch.

Three years later, his mum Sally organised a hog roast with live entertainment to give something back to the unit along with St Thomas’ Hospital in London, which also cared for Oliver.

Mrs Warner said: “Without both of the hospitals, I know that Ollie would not be here but he is now a father and loving his life.

“This donation is our way of saying thank you and hopefully it will help someone else.

“We all know that the NHS is there for everyone but what we don’t realise until something happens is how committed all of the teams are to their patients. It is amazing what they do.”
