Sheffield Hosptials Charity

We are very excited to announce that the new primary helipad at Northen General Hospital is now open thanks to your generous donations to our Sheffield Helipad Appeal.

The “Saving Time, Saving Lives” campaign  was launched to raise funds to build a new helipad right outside the A&E department which will mean that patients requiring life-saving treatment at the Major Trauma Centre (MTC) will receive it within seconds of landing, saving valuable time as every second can be crucial when dealing with major trauma injuries.

The project cost around £2 million to complete. More than £1.4 million has been pledged or committed including £900,000 from the County Air Ambulance Trust, which exists to help fund helipads. This leaves £80,000 to be raised to cover final costs.

If you would like to find out more about donating or fundraising, please email helipad@shct.nhs.uk or call 0114 271 1351
