I'm fundraising because I have worked at Harefield Hospital for the past 22 years and have seen at first hand the wonderful pioneering heart and lung surgery that has been performed here. It is my wish that by writing and producing this cookery book it will help to raise much needed funds for life saving surgery and procedures. Harefield Hospital is raising money to buy state-of-the-art cardiovascular imaging equipment that is not funded by the NHS.

Harefield Hospital is raising £500,000 to support the redevelopment of Cath Lab 5 where emergency life saving procedures take place including angiograms, angioplasty, ablation and implantation of pacemakers. The Cath Lab is different from an operating theatre where patients would normally have surgery under a general anaesthetic.  In the Cath Lab patients are normally awake under local anaesthesia and experience less trauma, reduced pain and recover more quickly and gives patients a real lifeline when major surgery is not suitable for them.

With every donation of £25.00 and above you will receive a copy of Daph’s Heartwarming Everyday Cookbook
