  • Toy Appeal Thanks

     AWB Textiles would like to say a big thank you to everyone who donated to the Toy Appeal. 

    You might have previously seen us post about the Pirate FM Toy appeal for the Children’s Hospice in the South West where we asked you to donate a new toy to our drop off point in a bid to make a child’s Christmas extra special. We want to share the huge success of this campaign. Over 1000 toys were donated across the Country. Our donation bin at AWB Textiles was filled with toys so thank you to those who contributed. We were also able to donate a sack full of surplus toys to the CHSW Little Bridge House in Barnstaple echoing the huge success of the appeal.

  • Beauty Treatments Become More Surgical

    Over the recent years we have seen huge growth within the cosmetic
    surgery industry, not only in terms of the types of procedures now
    available but also the number of people seeking these cosmetic
    treatments. According to a recent BBC article cosmetic procedure in 2013
    saw cosmetic procedures increase by 17% compared to the previous year.

    The most popular cosmetic surgery procedures include:

    - Liposuction
    - Breast Augmentation
    - Tummy Tucks
    - Face and neck lifts
    - Nose jobs

    As the growth in cosmetic surgery shows no signs of slowing down there
    are now hundreds of medical practices in need of comfy yet stylish scrub
    suits and uniforms for their medical staff. Here at AWB Textiles we have
    a great range of scrub suits online that you can view by clicking here.

    It will promote better survival chances for not just dental patients at the practice but also those in the wider community.

  • Simon Stevens New Chief Executive of NHS England

    The 1st of April saw Simon Stevens step into his role as new Chief Executive of NHS Healthcare in England. With promises to “chart a successful future for our healthcare service” Simon has received a warm welcome by many who have recognised the need for new ideas and fresh energy.

    Also expressed a need to focus on how care is delivered outside of hospitals. Existing structure is under extreme pressure and scrutiny. Therefore there is a desperate need to rethink and possibly even abandon the old and what now seems outdated separation between GP’s, community nurses, A and E’s etc. Continue reading
