    Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity

    Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity funds specialist equipment, training and services, going above and beyond the provision of the NHS to help improve treatment and facilities for all departments and services at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust. We are delighted to partner with The Rotary Club of Harrogate for the 2019 Nidderdale Walk.

    We raise funds and help make a difference across all areas of the Trust. Recently we funded a refurbishment of our Children’s Outpatients Department costing £75,000. With the support of local businesses, individuals, other charities and fundraising groups we were able to transform the ambience of the department with a new woodlands theme, new toys and lighting making it a much better place for children coming in for appointments. In addition to this, the refurbishment has enabled us to increase the capacity which will enable us to increase the number of patients that can be seen from 9,000 to 15,000 a year.

    In addition to this, we have just officially launched our new Nuclear Medicine Gamma Scanner within the radiology department. The Symbia Intevo Bold Spect/CT is one of only 21 in the World and just the 3rd in the UK. This top of the range ‘Gamma Scanner’ is a diagnostic tool used to examine how well an organ, or part of the body, is working. The new scanner is already improving the comfort and experiences of patients. It delivers a faster and higher quality of diagnostic imaging and is used to diagnose a wide range of conditions including cancer and rheumatology.

    We are currently working with the ophthalmology department to raise over £85,000 for a new Retcam3 imaging system. This state of the art camera takes high resolution images of the back of children’s eyes and enables consultants detect a range of eye problems including retinopathy of prematurity, and helps to prevent blindness in premature babies. The camera can also be used for babies and children for diagnosing other eye conditions such as retinoblastoma, a rare type of cancer, and can also be used to detect shaken baby syndrome and can be used as evidence of such.

    Thanks to the amazing support of the pupils and PTA of Belmont Grosvenor School in Birstwith, we are in the process of refurbishing the play and activity room within our Woodlands Children’s Ward. This will make it a brighter and more interactive environment for children of all ages. In addition to this we are in the process of designing a full refurbishment of the outside activity area on the ward too. This will provide an attractive outside space which can be used by children and young people, whatever their age, and will incorporate space for both play and relaxation.


    If you would like to raise funds for Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity, please do get in touch with us for a fundraising pack by email hhcc@hdft.nhs.uk or call us on 01423 555641.
