Cardiothoracic research unit
Thanks to the efforts of fundraisers and generosity of the local community there will be a new home for heart research on Teesside, just as Teesside’s heart unit is celebrating a milestone anniversary after 30 years of delivering state-of-the-art care to patients with cardiovascular disease across the region and beyond.
As well as general fundraising activities taking place across all our hospital sites, we regularly have specific appeals that we look for your help and support with.
Our Hospitals Charity and South Cleveland Heart Fund announced ambitious plans to raise £650,000 in March 2022 to bring first class cardiovascular research facilities to Teesside.
With help from staff and patients, their fundraising goal has now been exceeded and work is underway to transform existing space at the hospital into a leading-edge facility.
This will include the creation of a dedicated clinical setting for patients in research trials as well as a reception, patient waiting area, new office space and a meeting room.Find out more about the Hearts and Minds appeal
Renal day unit
The James Cook University Hospital’s aging renal day unit has now been transformed into a modern, purpose-built centre just 11 months after a major fundraising appeal was launched.
This was despite the challenges posed by COVID-19 and we are so grateful to everyone for their efforts.
