Total Car Parks has lent its support to the ‘West Berkshire Community Hospital Open Day’ [on Thursday September 6] by offering a day’s free parking on the Patient/Visitor car park it operates, in celebration of the hospital’s new £5 million Renal Dialysis and Cancer Care Units.
Essy Eslamian, Managing Director of Total Car Parks, said: “We are thrilled to support the ‘West Berkshire Community Hospital Open Day’ in this way. The units were built through public donations and provide essential facilities to the community - and we wanted to give something back to them”.
The event runs from 12 noon until 4pm, and all visitors using West Berkshire Community Hospital’s patient/visitor car park will get complimentary parking on the day, giving them the opportunity to visit the new facility without worrying about the parking fees.
The Renal Dialysis and Cancer Care Units provide day therapy, chemotherapy, renal dialysis, Intravenous (IV) Therapy and a CT scanner. The Renal Dialysis Unit has already opened and the Cancer Care Unit will officially open on 10th September 2018.
The units have been built by organisations working together including the Newbury & Thatcham Hospital Building Trust, Newbury Cancer Care Trust, Berkshire Healthcare Foundation Trust and the Royal Berkshire Hospital Trust.
The open day is the chance to thank the community for their support including those who donated to ‘The Rosemary Appeal’ – the driving force behind the fundraising which falls just £250,000 short of its £5.3 million target.
Robert Tayton, of the Rosemary Appeal, said: “The appeal committee and hospital are very grateful that Total Car Parks is supporting this vital project by allowing free car parking for the public viewing day.”
