We urgently need to build a new facility for our Emergency Department
We urgently need your help to build new facilities for our Emergency Department. Your support will help Sheffield Children’s continue its vital work in paediatric care, giving children the best chance to fulfil their potential.
The coronavirus pandemic has seen our NHS heroes step forward to go above and beyond to protect the most vulnerable members of society, including children.
At Sheffield Children’s, staff on the frontline at our Emergency Department have been working 24/7, every day to battle the most complex illnesses and save lives. As a nationally designated major trauma centre, they provide critical emergency care for children across the region.
They have also been carrying out all emergency children’s surgery that would have taken place at surrounding hospitals across Yorkshire and beyond, to support them through this unprecedented time.
Yet our staff do so in an Emergency Department which sees double the patients it was originally built for. In times of social distancing, it is essential the staff as well as patients and families have the space they need and not add further stress to an already trying time.
Every pound makes a difference and together we need to ensure our doctors and nurses have exactly what they want, when they need it to deliver the best possible care for our patients.
Show your support
Can you help bridge the gap and show your support for our NHS by starting a fundraiser?
Due to the fall in fundraising as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Sheffield Children’s will receive less charitable funds this financial year. It is essential we do not allow the wellbeing of children and young people to be adversely affected with a long delay in developing the hospital’s facilities.
