Fundraising

Funding through the local NHS framework helps us provide the best services for you in terms of medical, surgical and cancer care.

Our expenditure plans are clearly defined to enable us to meet our waiting list and other performance targets.

The role of fundraising is to provide the additional monies in specific areas that go beyond the Trust’s normal range of services. These may be large capital projects (such as a new treatment centre), funding for research, or smaller funds to provide additional equipment or to improve the care environment for patients, carers, relatives and visitors.

The picture above is the Stephanie Marks Diabetes Resource Centre at St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, that was officially opened by Sir Ian Botham OBE. The centre is dedicated to Stephanie Marks, a young girl who dreamed of becoming a doctor and who tragically died from complications from the disease in 2002, aged just 17. We are extremely grateful to the many people who donated time and money to support the fundraising for the new centre.

Little Roo Neonatal Fund

The Little Roo Neonatal Fund is the local charity for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St. Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey, Surrey.

The Little Roo Neonatal Fund was set up by a team of doctors, nurses, parents and support staff and is part of the Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals Charitable Trust (Reg Charity 1058567) with the specific aim of supporting the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Each Neonatal Intensive care cot costs in the region of £80,000 to fully equip, and we also have been able to purchase an ultrasound machine (£60k), equipment to help babies breathe (£4k to £20k each), a breast milk pasteurizer (£19k) and devices for treating and monitoring potential brain injury (£20k).

There is always an ongoing need for additional and replacement specialist equipment, and also to send staff for specialist training that the NHS cannot provide funding for.
