It’s complex stuff, but your donation will – together with the help of others – achieve remarkable things.
HOW YOUR SUPPORT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Supporting our Neuro Services helps fund important equipment and facilities that are ‘over and above’ normal provision, as well as specialist teaching, education and research in order to ensure that our amazing teams can give the highest quality, most effective care to all patients. Your donation could contribute to a range of projects including:
- Medical Equipment- such as Deep Brain Stimulation equipment for Neuro Surgery that can help reduce the systems of disorders such as Parkinson's, major depression and chronic pain.
- Patient Experience- items such as portable video EEG monitoring devices that help patients with epilepsy record their seizures without staying in hospital. Not only does this enhance the patient experience but also keeps neurology beds free for those who require specialist nursing.
- Education- helping to install new technology such as surgical microscopes sending live images of operations to large screens to help support student and trainee doctors education.
- Staff support- providing weekly fruit baskets and comfort items over and above for staff who work in the department.
