The fundraising team from the Royal Liverpool Hospital’s R charity will be taking over the city centre during Friday 9th September to raise awareness and funds for the new Royal Hospital.
The day is intended to raise money towards the £10million appeal to ensure that services at the new Royal go beyond even the NHS promise of care.
The money from the £10million appeal will be invested into the latest in high-technology equipment for diagnoses and treatments that will help save lives, and to create environments that provide fantastic comfort and conveniences for patients and families.
Some of the key areas looking to benefit from the £10 million appeal include:
- The Breast Unit, the money will enable the Trust to purchase 3 new mammography units, including 2 with the latest tomosynthesis technology, meaning patients can be diagnosed and treated at an earlier stage.
- Critical Care, patients and relatives are very vulnerable when needing critical care. R Charity will help to equip us with the latest technology, and furnish us to a high standard to improve the comfort and privacy of patients and relatives
- Stroke Unit, getting stroke patients out of bed and back home to live a normal life as soon as possible is at the heart of all we do. The Appeal will fund a new telemetry monitoring system allowing us to improve patient safety and search for the causes of stroke, plus a suite of new specialist chairs which help severely disabled stroke patients sit out of bed and make the first steps towards recovery.
