You can help make a change for the better with a new Emergency Department, £4.5million
Sheffield Children’s Hospital Emergency Department is also a Major Trauma Centre and helps up to 200 children a day from South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire deal with every possible problem imaginable. As the population of the region grows so does the demand on our ED.
The department was originally built to see a maximum of 32,000 patients a year but now sees 60,000 patients. Our treatment is among the best in the UK, but our facilities do little to ease the anxiety felt by children and families at what is often a stressful and scary time. We want everyone who attends our department to not just receive the best care but also to have the best possible experience.
Why we can’t wait for a new Emergency Department?
You can help build a new Emergency Department creating space and privacy, so children receive the most appropriate care in the best possible way. We want to ease the stress for all our patients and their families when they come to our Emergency Department. If you have to wait, we want to create a place for your child to play and have fun, which can ease anxiety for both the patient and their parents.
Charity funding facilitates the best possible services to be developed. Your support will make a difference not just to the care that children receive but to the way that they receive it. We want children who come to us for treatment to have the best possible experience, delivered to them by a team who has everything that they could possibly need.
