What we do There's always more we can do for patients. Let's do it together. The care that the sisters, doctors, nurses and support workers gave to not only my baby but to me and my partner too is second to none. These amazing people saved our baby girl’s life and for that we will be forever grateful. It is such a rollercoaster of emotions to go through and the support they offer is phenomenal. Kelly Harrison, parent and patient 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 build on the outstanding work of staff across Sheffield Teaching Hospitals to transform the care and treatment of all those who need it. What do we do? 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 SupportBy 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. EnvironmentBy 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. EquipmentBy 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. ResearchBy 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 DevelopmentBy ensuring that staff have access to the latest training, development and emotional support, they can continue to provide the best care possible. How do we do it?
