Brentford Football Club has made a donation of kit to West Middlesex University Hospital. The hospital, in Isleworth, is the closest to Brentford FC and is regularly visited by players and staff. A group visited to provide Christmas gifts to patients at the end of 2019.
The hospital is part of the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and provides a range of specialist clinical services as well as general hospital services for people living locally, which include A&E and maternity. The Trust runs two main hospitals, Chelsea and Westminster and West Middlesex, and also offers a range of community-based services. It has 6,000 staff caring for nearly one million people in the area.
The Club donated polo shirts for staff to wear around the hospital while they are using more clothing than usual due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Around 150 items in a range of sizes were given to staff to use as makeshift uniform during this unprecedented time. They are already in use.
