Our very deserving beneficiaries

The Kipling Children’s Ward

A firm favourite of the Friends and we’ve helped where we can on many occasions over the years. More recently the Friends have donated just over £ 6,000 to buy a sofa for visiting parents, and Educational toys and Rhythmic music making games for the inpatient children to help with their recovery.

The Sleep Unit

With the help of these kits the Conquest sleep unit has become one of the top 3 sleep units in the UK.

‘Dear Sleep Team,
Since going on CPAP, my life has changed so much. I don’t feel sleepy during the day But feel so much more energetic. I get Eight hours a night on my machine. The Unit is very friendly and helpful and always there if I need to phone with a query. So Thankyou Sleep Study Unit for giving me back my life’ SL

Music Live

A wide range of music is performed on the balcony in the Conquest’s main reception area and around the Hospital. These short performances are given by professional musicians, accomplished amateurs and young people from local schools and colleges.

A Musician in Residence scheme has been established in which young musicians embarking on professional careers in music are appointed for one year and are regular performers.

Hospital Radio

DJ Jeff broadcasting the Full English Breakfast Show to Patients and Staff around the Hospital. The Friends helped with some of the equipment the radio needed. In response Jeff sent this message:

“A big hug from Jeff. Thank you all you Friends.”

Speech Therapy

This year the Friends bought a £43,000 FEES! Not the hat but a Fibreoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing for the Egerton Unit which specialises in speech and language therapy for which they are Internationally renowned.
