The founder of Bet365 has had her foundation donate £10 million to the University Hospitals of North Midlands Charity, which is a part of the UK's National Health Services.
The Denise Coates Foundation made the donation in the form of a grant, which will be used to enhance patient care and staff support. The timing of the donation couldn't have been better, as the Covid-19 outbreak is ravaging the UK as a whole, and resources are desperately needed. Bet365 has offices in the area, with staff potentially in the service radius for the hospitals.
Coates spoke about the donation, noting: "We have all seen and heard the events unfold in the media as day after day the number of those infected increases and the number of those who tragically lose their lives also rises.
"There are many stories of people suffering without the comfort of close friends and family as restrictions on people's movement prevent loved ones visiting.
"This is why I and the other trustees felt we had to step forward and approach the UHNM to see what we could do to help. We are sure that the funding the Foundation provides will make a huge difference to the Hospital, the staff and more broadly the people of North Staffordshire and the surrounding area."
UNHM CEO Tracy Bullock added: "As a result of Covid-19 we have rapidly established new ways of working but in some circumstances are lacking the technology to do this in the most effective way. This investment will help fund schemes and provide latest technology to improve communications between clinicians; between clinicians and patients and between patients and their families."
