Enhancing patient care – Cancer Care Hub

We funded a brand new Cancer Hub at Epsom Hospital providing a dedicated space for our incredible Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialists to collaborate. 

With the growing number of patients across Epsom and St Helier’s Hospitals, having a centralised hub ensures better coordination and accessibility for both staff and patients. 

This new space allows our Clinical Nurse Specialists to work more efficiently, share best practices, and provide real-time support to patients. It’s a significant improvement that enhances the quality of care and patient experience. 

Enhancing patient care – Cardiac Rehab

We funded brand new equipment, including a shiny new rowing machine, at St Helier’s Hospitals gym. 

The dedicated Cardiac Rehabilitation team support patients recovering from various cardiac conditions, such as angina, heart attacks, and cardiac arrests. The exercise specialists guide them through their rehabilitation journey to help minimise future cardiac risks.

Equipped with excellent facilities, including the latest addition of the rowing machine, our gyms on site ensure patients receive specialised rehab from our expert team in their local hospital. The new equipment not only offers low impact cardio but also provides a nostalgic rowing experience for those who previously rowed on the Thames.

We often hear from patients how our rehab programmes has restored their confidence and allowed them to return to things they enjoy.”

Supporting our staff

During the festive season and into the New Year, we were proud to be able to go above and beyond to support staff wellbeing. Thanks to your donations we were able to provide gestures of appreciation including complimentary hot drinks and treats and meals for staff working on Christmas Day. Additionally, we were able to fund staff celebrations across our hospitals, for staff to have the chance to get together and celebrate their year. 

Creating a welcoming environment

We are delighted to be able to support our Children’s Services by providing a range of toys, games and activities for our youngest patients. Last Christmas, 2023, we were able to provide over £5,000 worth of goodies to our children’s wards. 

We couldn’t be more grateful to the hospital charity and all its donors for their continued support, it makes such a difference to children staying or spending time in our hospitals.”
