I am raising money rot the Royal Brompton & Harefield Charity for the Covid-19 appeal so that we continue to support the wellbeing of staff and provide the highest quality care. This appeal will also purchase life-saving equipment for those needing urgent care now, but also for patients in the future. We aim to raise £100,000 to contribute to priorities, such as:

Staff wellbeing and sustenance packages, including drinks, hand cream, massages and treatments.
With strict limitations on visitors, an onsite Patient Experience Coordinator will deliver face to face or virtual activities to improve the experience of adult patients, particularly those who experience long and/or multiple stays. Several patients have been inpatients for over 6 months.
£1,750 will buy one of 20 humidifiers needed, which will add moisture and warmth to the air delivered to a patient via a ventilator. This will reduce dryness and improve comfort when breathing.
£7,514 will buy one handheld blood gas analyser that delivers lab-quality diagnostic results at the bedside within a few minutes
£49,000 will buy ECMO equipment for the most critically ill patients with Covid-19. ECMO will do the work of a patient’s lungs, or both heart and lungs, until theirs can function properly again.
