Your contribution will help us continue our work supporting patients at King’s.
With your support, we can:
- Save lives. Over 5,000 people die every year in the UK from brain tumours. That’s why with your donations we purchased an intra-operative ultrasound machine. The machine provides surgeons with an outstanding image of the brain, improving the success of surgery for adults and children with brain tumours.
- Make them better. Charity funding will directly improve the experience of patients and their families in King’s new Critical Care Centre. New bedside technology, access to fresh air and the outside world and beautiful art installations will make our patients’ stay in hospital very different. For the first time, we’ll be able to research the demonstrable benefits of technology and environmental enhancements on treatment and recovery; opening up new opportunities to transform care for the very sickest people across the UK and beyond.
- Act even faster. When King’s helipad opened, thanks to charitable support, it reduced the time taken to transfer our most critically ill patients from 25 minutes to five minutes. Over 200 patients are delivered to King’s by air each year.
