16-year-old Being Treated For Head Injuries
Crutch Amnesty At The Royal Berks
Managers at the Reading Hospital are asking people to return crutches to the Emergency Room.
They give out an average 134 sets every month, costing £11 each time.
Debra Evans, a Sister in the Emergency Department, told us why they're doing it:
"We're like everywhere else, we need to recoup funds as we can and we thought that people may have them in their loft, back of their cars so if they have them and they're not using them, bring them back and we can re-issue them."
She added what they'll do with them:
"They get a makeover, one of our occupational therapists will go through a check list just to make sure their safe to re-issue to the general public."
Anyone who wants to return sets, from any department in the hospital, can give them in at the Emergency Department's main reception.
We asked Oxford John Radcliffe Hospitals and Basingstoke and North Hampshire, and they both said it didn't seem to be too much of a problem for them.
