A ROCK legend has described Worcestershire’s community nurses as "unsung heroes" after donating new equipment to the NHS team in Kidderminster.

Robert Plant, front man of iconic rock band Led Zeppelin, has donated a new emergency lifting cushion to the Glades Neighbourhood Team.

The cushion will support patients who have had a fall at home.

The Glades Neighbourhood Team is one of 13 integrated community nursing teams working across Worcestershire.

Led by Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust and made up of nurses, therapists, social workers and GPs, the team provides care and treatment in patients’ homes, reducing avoidable admissions to hospital by around 15 a day.

Mr Plant said: "The Neighbourhood Teams do a really important job in supporting people to remain at home, avoiding hospital wherever possible.

"Community nurses and social care teams are real unsung heroes and over the last few months they have been on the front-line, in people’s homes, caring for some of the most vulnerable in our communities.

"I am pleased to be able to support the teams and want to help raise awareness of these amazing staff who don’t often get the praise they deserve.”

The cushion will be used by the Glades Neighbourhood Team which supports patients across Kidderminster and Hagley.

Ruth Walmsley, Glades Neighbourhood Team lead, said: “This generous donation will mean so much to our patients as we will be able to respond in an urgent way to assist patients when they have fallen.

"Currently this requires a paramedic call-out as this is not equipment we have access to in the Neighbourhood Team, so having this equipment readily available will save the paramedics having to respond to these calls and free up their capacity for life threatening emergencies.”

He's supporting local businesses and in particular, the hospital. It's not about how much money he gives, he's helping out. There are many other musicians worth a whole lot more who haven't done a thing during Covid.

Hey moron, according to locals in his area he does A LOT for charity all the time. You just don't hear about it because it's kept private.

A lot of what he does is kept private.

The cushion will actually save the taxpayer a lot of money as the article states it will save on ambulance call outs. There was the money he donated for the making of scrubs recently and over the years the money donated to the physical rehab centre, the hub for aspiring artists and musicians and he personally gave a 6 figure sum into the hole of debt that was Wolves (now a team in great shape and 6th in the Premier League) Hence why he is held in such high regard by their fans he probably gave them the extra time needed to save that club.

Many other deeds will probably never see the light of day.

There has been a lot posted about charitable contributions Robert has done both locally and nationally. If it's private, clearly there would be no proof because he's not doing it for his own glory but to help out others. Why are you so pissed about it?

Are you really going to attempt to justify your original snide post? How do you know what the man does or does not do to help others? Are you a close friend? No? Then (with respect) STFU bro....
