Last year the Friends raised £260,000 for Conquest Hospital
It buys extra equipment and services for the Conquest to improve the health, comfort and care of its’ patients.
The Friends raise money for the Conquest Hospital
We run the hospital shop and daily patient trolley service, receive gifts, donations and organise fundraising events throughout the year with volunteers. The money we raise is used to supplement the services provided by the Conquest Hospital for the health, welfare and comfort of the patients it treats.
The Friends provide new supplementary medical facilities, services and equipment which otherwise would be in short supply. In 2017, The Friends aims to raise £1m to purchase a new MRI Scanner to replace the 13-year-old scanner the Hospital currently operates.
Because of the very substantial cost of a new MRI scanner the Conquest Hospital, which is the major acute site in the area for trauma, orthopaedics, surgery and paediatrics, is currently unable to purchase it. East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust will fund the building of a new suite to house it. The Friends are running a Public Appeal to tie in with the 25th anniversary of the opening of the Hospital, and hope to have raised the funds in time for the new scanner to be installed by Autumn 2018. This is named the Conquest Hospital MRI Scanner Appeal. It will benefit the 400,000 people in the Hospital’s catchment area. To donate to the Appeal and to find out more click here.
Your donations help us to support the Conquest Hospital. As Healthcare funding these days is tight extra money buys equipment and services the Hospital would otherwise be with out.
By fundraising for the Friends you’re helping an amazing team of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers do extraordinary things to improve the lives of patients in their care.
Your legacy can be a wonderful way to celebrate the life of a loved one or to recognise and thank the medical team involved in their care. A fitting way to be remembered.
