Our appeal to you: Building a Better Future

You can help take care to the next level

Sheffield Children’s Hospital is a specialist children’s hospital, providing world-class care for children all over Yorkshire, across the UK and beyond. The Children’s Hospital Charity makes Sheffield Children’s Hospital even better, by creating an environment built with children in mind. The newest addition are three world-class new wards which opened in April 2018 with £10m of your donations.

But that’s not the end of the story, we aren’t finished, we still need to build a better future for our children by redeveloping the Emergency Department (ED), Child Assessment Unit (CAU) and Cancer and Leukaemia ward as well as a building a new Helipad.

Building a Better Future

Sheffield Children’s Hospital prides itself on delivering world-class care for thousands of children every week; but we need your help to redevelop the environment they are treated in.

You can help build a better future for the up to 200 children a day who visit our Emergency Department, the 90 patients a year who are treated on our Cancer and Leukaemia Ward as well as the Major Trauma patients who arrive via helicopter when every second counts.

Emergency Department: We can’t wait for a new waiting room.

Helipad appeal: The one time we don’t want children waiting for the green man.

Cancer and Leukaemia: Because for families home is where the patient is.
