Thank you for your support this Christmas

Thank you for your donations to the charity this Christmas. You helped to brighten up the hospitals for patients, visitors, and staff in hospital through the festive period.  You made it possible for us to provide:

  • Christmas trees for wards at Hillingdon and Mount Vernon Hospitals.
  • Christmas gift boxes for the Childrens's wards from our corporate partners
  • Breakfast for staff working to care for patients at Hillingdon & Mount Vernon Hospitals on Christmas Day itself
  • Small Christmas parties for some of our older patients and carol singing with festive refreshments on wards.

In addition, we are very grateful to the businesses and organisations who supported in other ways, through donations of presents for patients, hospital visits, boxes of chocolates for staff, or playing/singing music in the hospitals. 

Your support makes a real difference for people here in Hillingdon Hospital and Mount Vernon Hospital. Thank you. 

If you didn't get involved last year, but would like to help, you can make a one-off donation here, or set up a monthly donation to help us plan for the future here.

We are hugely grateful for your support.

Thank you!

Guest beds for family members

We want to trial providing foldable guest beds on some of the wards with single patient rooms, so that family members can more comfortably be closer to their loved ones when they are very unwell. Patient families and staff tell us that this will make a huge difference for people. 

This is only possible with your donations. It will make a huge difference for people facing very difficult situations. Please consider donating now online, and we will be able to speed this up, and find other opportunities to help patients in Hillingdon & Mount Vernon Hospitals. 

Support excellence in healthcare, and celebrate NHS staff

We want to celebrate the NHS staff who care for us, and who make it work when we need it most, all year, day and night. As such, we are working to support the Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Staff Awards 2017, by inviting businesses to support the 2017 awards programme.

Who fancies a run? We are teaming up with The Hillingdon Half Marathon

We are hugely excited to announce that we've teamed up with the Hillingdon Half Marathon, as their official charity. 800 people will run a half marathon, or 10k course, and we are encouraging as many of them as possible to run for the hospitals charity. 

The race, which starts and finishes very close to Hillingdon Hospital, at the Brunel University Campus, is a key date in the Hillingdon sporting calendar.

We will be awarding prizes for the top fundraiser for the charity, as well as fastest fundraiser. On the day, the wonderful physiotherapy team from Hillingdon Hospital have volunteered their free time to provide a post race massage for runners (on a first come first served basis, so run fast if you'd like a massage!) 

By running for the hospitals, you'll be doing more than running. You'll be helping to do something truly amazing, right here in the community in Hillingdon. 

For more information on the race, visit http://hillingdonhalfmarathon.co.uk/ or contact us.

You can set up your fundraising page online here.

Thanks!

You have helped patients and staff in A&E - Thank you!

Your donations have helped us fund £35,000 of upgraded patient monitoring equipment for our Accident & Emergency Department. Making improvements to the monitoring of very unwell patients, giving reassurance to patients and family members, and helping the staff on the department deliver the best possible care. 

This would not have been possible without your donations and support. Thank you.
