Gyrating video to Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta classic to raise money for ventilator appeal

Hospital staff have taken part in a hilarious Grease video spoof to raise money for the Special Care Baby Unit Appeal.

Their dancing to a recording of You’re the One That I Want features the ‘SCBU T-Birds’ and ‘Pink Ladies’ gyrating to the John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John classic.

The ‘one they want’ is another Draeger neonatal ventilator and is they dance around it throughout the film.

Staff enthusiastically embraced the idea and took part in their own time before the start of a staff training day.

Fundraising manager Ian Roome, aka Danny Zuko, said: “This is a film where you will see some of our NHS staff as never seen before, all in aid of a great cause.”

Ian was joined by fundraising assistant Gemma Steele as ‘Sandy’.

Each ventilator costs £45,000 and the unit needs three. SCBU nurse Liz Mills said: “Ventilators are an essential piece of equipment to support our babies that have difficulty breathing by blowing oxygen-enriched air gently into the baby’s lungs.

“This ventilator however will do so much more than our conventional ventilator enabling our nurses to spend more time caring for the babies on the unit.”

The film can be watched at and you can find out how to donate.
