How your support helps
Your donations and fundraising enables us to purchase state of the art equipment, sometimes quicker than we could through NHS budgets, and to provide the best care and comfort for the 1.1 million people we serve each year.
At Bradford Royal Infirmary, we have one of the busiest accident and emergency departments in the country, caring for more than 125,000 attendances per year. We also have one of the busiest maternity units in the country, delivery more than 6,000 babies every year.
Our charity supports every single patient, every day – and is here for every family in Bradford.
So, whether you choose to hold a bake sale, get training for one of our sports events, or organise a sponsored fancy dress day at your work or school – you’ll be doing something amazing for Bradford.
Donations to the Sunshine Fund benefit all areas of the hospitals, from supporting vital services including intensive care and accident and emergency, to providing lots of lovely things which help spread a little sunshine – art therapies on wards, Christmas presents for patients in our hospitals, overnight essentials for family members needing to stay in hospital with their loved ones unexpectedly.
Children and Special Care Babies
Your donations help raise a little smile for the youngest patients in our care – from the 6,000 babies we deliver every year, to the special care babies we ensure get the best start, and the children and teenagers who we look after every day.
Cancer Care Fund
Give a little support. Your donations have supported the refurbishment of the main cancer care ward at Bradford Royal Infirmary – helping to make patients as comfortable as possible when undergoing cancer care. We now want to improve the hospital environments for all our cancer patients including the chemotherapy ward.
Dementia and Elderly Care Fund
Help us have a natter
In early 2017, a new £28 million wing opened at Bradford Royal Infirmary, part of a £75m investment to improve patient care across our hospitals over a five-year period. It provides world-class facilities for elderly care, children’s services, a state-of-the-art intensive care unit with increased single-room provision and a retail concourse.
Your fundraising and donations helped us to create a family-friendly environments, innovative state-of-the-art equipment, patient and carer comforts and innovative distraction toys and games too.
The new wing is a continuation of the Trust’s work to improve patient experience after the new £2 million neonatal unit officially opened in January 2015. With the support of Bradford Hospitals Charity, it introduced more cots, including intensive care and high dependency cots, new family accommodation, a revamped counselling suite and a dedicated room for mothers to express milk for pre-term babies.
We continue to support the strategic direction of the Trust. And all we do is above and beyond what NHS needs to provide.
With brilliant, compassionate staff who work incredibly hard to deliver the very best treatment and care to our patients and their families. But we can always do more.
