With the help of you, our local community, Love Your Hospital provides vital funds to support hospital projects beyond core NHS funding at St Richard’s in Chichester, Worthing Hospital and Southlands Hospital in Shoreham. This includes providing state-of-the-art medical equipment, improving treatment facilities for patients, supporting staff development and enhancing the hospital environment for all.
Putting patients first
Love Your Hospital supports a diverse range of projects across St Richard’s, Worthing and Southlands Hospitals where there is a clear and direct benefit to patients.
Love Your Hospital ran a four-year appeal to raise £3.5 million needed to fund a purpose-built cancer day unit at St Richard’s Hospital. Services include diagnosis, treatment and monitoring along with NHS-approved complementary therapy including aromatherapy, Bath flower remedies and reflexology.
Cardiac Catheter Laboratory
Worthing Hospital has a modern cardiac catheter laboratory for invasive treatments following a £1 million appeal lead by Love Your Hospital in 2012.
Soft Close Ward Bins
Following a patient survey that identified how frequent slamming of bin lids on wards at night resulted in sleep disruption and hindered recovery, Love Your Hospital funded ward bins to be replaced with soft-close alternatives. A small gesture which has made a huge difference to the lives of many of our patients across the trust.
