Clinical teams from across the Trust’s two hospitals united for the Charity’s 2017 thank you video, taking time out of their tight schedules to express their gratitude.

Teams such as the cardiology team at Royal Brompton, and the clinical education team at Harefield contributed towards the video for charity supporters after a remarkable year of projects, progress and achievements.

The video highlights the milestones and life-changing projects the charity achieved in 2017, such as the completion of the recent intensive care unit (ICU) appeal at Harefield Hospital, and the transformation of Royal Brompton’s paediatric intensive care unit (PICU).

Non-clinical teams and community groups also joined in for the video, with appearances from the Charity’s own rb&hArts team, and the Singing for Breathing Choir. Karen Taylor, Arts Manager said: “[Charity] money helps us bring artists into the hospital to really help people feel better while they’re recovering from their treatments and operations. It also helps us bring singing out to people living in the community with long-term conditions – really, your money is about making people well.”

Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub, who pioneered transplant surgery in the UK at Harefield Hospital, also makes an appearance in the video. He said: “I’m sure all of you know how wonderful the work of the two hospitals is, throughout generations. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your support – because without it, the two hospitals would not continue the way they have done.”
