Having a child in hospital is one of the most stressful events a family can face. That’s why we’re using ‘The Big Appeal’ campaign to raise funds for highly specialised diagnostic equipment that accurately identifies illness and disease earlier. Funds will also provide families with reassuring in-hospital facilities; a comfortable home from home experience that allows families to stay close whilst their child is receiving expert care.
Located in the Queen’s Medical Centre, the Children’s Hospital cares for babies, children and young people from across a large Midlands region, treating a diversity of conditions including cancer, leukaemia, kidney disease, organ transplants and facial surgery. Despite inevitable pain and suffering it is also an inspiring place to work; children bringing a level of brightness and optimism that helps chase away the shadows of illness.
Our specialist intensive care Neonatal Units are based at both QMC and City Hospitals and along with our Children’s Hospital, they bring together a unique group of specialist teams and support for families with sick and often pre-term babies.
For them our challenge is to raise £4 million by 2021. To meet this challenge we are reaching out to the communities of Nottingham and spreading word about our campaign in many ways, including launching our new Big Neonatal Appeal recently. This has now become part of our Big Appeal and will make a huge difference to the families of around 1,500 tiny babies who come to our neonatal units in Nottingham each year. They too will benefit from improved facilities, investment in paediatric imaging and research into new treatments.
If you want to support us further you can donate to the Big Appeal, as well as signing up for our Robin’s Big World Record, in May 2018.
Will you support us to help the patients and families using the Children’s Hospital? Every donation goes directly to providing improved care and research into new treatments for over 60,000 children and young people. Make it happen and it WILL make a difference.
