Donate To Frimley Health Charity
Your support helps to save and improve lives at your local hospital
The charity’s goal is to provide equipment and services that go beyond the NHS for patients, staff and visitors. We work hard with the hospital to ensure that the charity is not plugging the gaps. What you are helping to provide genuinely enhances the healthcare available to the local community in a way that would not otherwise be possible.
The charity pays no VAT on medical equipment, so your money goes further to provide the kind of specialist equipment that makes such a difference to people in their hour of need.
Here are some of the ways we help
Investing in innovative specialist equipment
Your support enables us to invest and innovate in technologies that will make a big difference to seriously ill patients. By diagnosing and treating more complex problems at your local hospital you are helping to keep families closer to home at an incredibly difficult time.
Providing facilities that make the hospital a more homely and sociable environment
Some people have to spend a lot of time in hospital and it is important to make their new home as comfortable as possible while also providing spaces for more privacy and family time. This is why we maintain spaces like the time garden for terminally ill patients to spend time with loved ones.
Giving the little extras that make a big difference
Some of the smaller things you have provided can make a huge difference to someone:
- DVD players for the children’s ward so sick kids have something there to distract and help them get to sleep at night.
- A weighing device that enables seriously injured or frail patients in intensive care to have their drug doses calculated according to their weight with minimum pain.
Helping staff provide the best possible care
Your support helps to ensure that hard working nurses have the best possible training and opportunities to practice critical skills more often. Although we don’t spend a large amount on this it is an important part of providing the best possible care for the community.
