Warrington and Halton Hospitals’ Charity, ‘WHH Charity’, raises funds to provide additional comforts, care or experiences for the direct benefit of patients and their families beyond that which the NHS provides.
With the support of our many, many donors and fundraisers we raise money to improve patient environments, fund additional equipment or facilities or provide important complimentary services to enhance our patients’ overall experience.
We can only continue our work by gaining the support of our local communities and our mission is to create as many different ways as possible to forge new partnerships and involve our supporters in ways that best suit them.
How your support has helped:
New technology to support liver care – Providing the latest equipment for patient care in gastroenterology “The charity has enabled us to provide Fibroscan technology for the first time and that really supports gastroenterology services at the trust,” explains Dr Bharathi, “Fibroscanning helps prevent the need for biopsy in some cases so it provides the best in patient care.”
Creating a multi-disciplinary dementia team – Supporting the best care for dementia patients in our Forget Me Not unit “We’ve piloted a new approach to dementia care in the Forget Me Not unit that is supporting this group of patients in new ways,” says Dr Graham Barton, lead elderly care consultant at the hospitals, “We wouldn’t have been able to do this without the support of the charity. We’ve been able to prove the patient benefits so that it is something that will hopefully become routinely funded in the future.”
