The amazing Claire Billington, one of our Patient Administration Co-ordinators on the Medical Assessment Unit, “Braved the Shave” this morning in order to raise money for charity.

Half of the donations Claire receives will be given to Derby & Burton Hospitals Charity to purchase drip stands in the Medical Assessment Unit.

Claire chose to brave the shave after her partner was diagnosed with Stage 2 Oral Cancer in 2014. This led to him needing an 11 hour operation to remove half of his tongue and lymph nodes in the right hand of his neck.
Claire’s partner was in hospital for nearly a month and wants to give something back for the great help the staff provided to him as a patient and the family.

Well done Claire, #TeamUHDB are incredibly proud of you for everything that you have done.
