We’re delighted that the new Mayor of Hillingdon, Councillor John Hensley, has included Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity in his Charity Appeal for the year 2016/17.

The appeal, aptly named ‘Journey Through Life’, will help to raise money for specialist nonmagnetic anaesthetic equipment at Harefield Hospital. This pioneering apparatus enables anaesthetised patients to undergo MRI scans, while receiving treatment for either a heart attack, or undergoing a heart or lung transplant – a service that is currently unavailable at Harefield.

The Mayor said: “I would like to raise money to purchase vital equipment that will enable professionals to provide a service which helps the most vulnerable in our society.”
