Enhancing Care

We are passionate about enhancing care and when making a donation to our charity, you can choose to donate to the service that means the most to you.

There are so many ways that donations can support patient care and add value to existing services.

Donations have made improvements in our Maternity Unit to provide four new consultant rooms that offer extra privacy and dignity for patients.

Our Music Therapy service at Croydon Hospital recently received a charity grant to extend its valuable service supporting children. The grant purchased musical instruments including tambourines, maracas and guitars which are used by children and our music therapist to help process difficult emotions.

Our current Power of Play appeal will help to enhance care at our new children’s unit by funding play facilities and resources as well as therapeutic areas such as a zen garden, for parents to take a moments rest when their child is sick.

Whether it’s a new comfortable chair for a patient waiting room, arts and crafts resources to help provide relaxation and stimulation or a brand new service development, your donation could make a real difference to patient care in Croydon.

Research Projects

Research plays an integral part in improving patient care and making sure our patients have access to the latest research, treatments and medicines.

Without medical research there would be no new medicines or tests, improved treatments, or better ways of providing healthcare.

The aim of research is to:

  • develop new treatments and medicines
  • prevent illnesses
  • improve quality of life
  • improve our understanding of medical conditions
  • understand the emotional and physical support you need if you're living with a medical condition.

Our charity funds a number of important projects including spinal research, maternity research and training and renal research.

Medical Equipment

Hospitals use an increasingly wide variety of medical equipment which range from simple devices such as nebulisers to deliver treatment for respiratory patients, through to sophisticated radiotherapy linear accelerators for providing lifesaving cancer treatments.

Charity funds have also purchased vital equipment for our Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU), including specialist monitors and incubators. Premature or sick babies can struggle to stay warm on their own and incubators are vital in help keeping babies warm in the unit.

Medical equipment purchased via charitable funds are VAT exempt meaning that your donation goes even further.

Whether a donation funds a new bladder scanner, heart rate monitor or pioneering technology, you will be helping to enhance patient care and improve the lives of Croydon patients.
