Bumps & Babies
Over 6,000 babies are born at our hospital a place where many special memories are created by parents as they welcome their new arrivals into the world. Families benefit from maternity and women’s beds, theatre suite, foetal assessment, MLBU, ultrasound department and neonatal intensive care unit.
The staff would like support in continuing to improve the facilities provided to our mums.
We treat over 900 poorly and premature babies in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit every year. Some may be with us for a few months while they grow and become strong enough to go home, others may just need a few days support with feeding. Babies born with specific problems may need surgery or complex medical care. Babies may start off in our Intensive Care room and as they grow and improve will progress through to High Dependency and on the Special Care rooms. When well enough to go home some babies and families will still need support and we are able to provide this with our Outreach Team of nurses.
The money you raise helps to pay for the most up to date equipment to care for babies, ensuring that staff are able to receive up to date training and that parents are supported with good facilities while their baby is in hospital.
Cancer & Oncology Care
Many of our staff at the hospital supports the work of the cancer and oncology departments and its specialisms. In addition to the wards and units that focus on the treatment and care of those suffering from and living with cancer, we also have surgical and research activity of the highest quality. To help fund the fantastic work taking place to help patients, please read more on where you can help.

On any given day up to a third of adult inpatients across all specialties will have either acute confusion or a pre-existing diagnosis of dementia in our hospital. Whilst the major risk factor for dementia is age, there are currently 45,000 people in the UK under the age of 65 living with dementia. Whilst rare, it may affect people as young as thirty.
Charity ward funds are used for purchases needed on the ward that are over and above what is covered by the NHS.
The aim is to make the ward a more pleasant and efficient environment for patients and staff through the addition of practical items such as equipment and extra furniture, TVs for rooms, exercise equipment, books and items to help pass the time. Additional staff training to support excellent patient care is also possible through charitable funds.
