The NHS provides an incredible service in the Sheffield area – but limited resources mean there is always more that can be done to support patients and their families. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we are able to support the outstanding work of staff across Sheffield Teaching Hospitals to transform the care and treatment of all those who need it.

The care that the staff gave to not only my baby but to me and my partner too is second to none.

These amazing people saved our baby's life and for that we will be forever grateful. The support they offer is phenomenal.

What do we do?

We support all 5 NHS hospitals in Sheffield including the Royal Hallamshire, Northern General, Charles Clifford Dental, Weston Park Cancer and the Jessop Wing. Everything we do is about enhancing the care and treatment of local patients, as well as those who care for them. We invest more than £2.5 million each year in five key areas:

  • Patient and Family Support
    By providing those extras such as, complementary massages for cancer patients to help them feel more relaxed, that help make time in hospital more bearable, we look after patients and their families through the toughest times.

  • Environment
    By improving the hospital environment by creating a 'home from home' atmosphere, we make the spaces more welcoming and attractive for staff, patients and their families improving well-being.

  • Equipment
    By funding state-of-the-art specialist medical equipment that would otherwise be unavailable, we can help to save lives by diagnosing and treating at an earlier stage.

  • Research
    By supporting pioneering research into the cause, prevention and treatment of illnesses, we contribute to breakthroughs in medical treatment that otherwise wouldn’t be possible (eg a clinical trial for a ground-breaking new treatment for MS patients using autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation).

  • Staff Development
    By ensuring that staff have access to the latest training, development and emotional support, they can continue to provide the best care possible.
