The loyal and generous support of many of the Hospital's Friends, benefactors, patients and past patients, not forgetting organisations, trusts and foundations, military associations and Livery companies, has played a considerable role in ensuring that King Edward VII's Hospital remains an exceptional institution.
Your support counts
In 2016 we launched our 120th Anniversary Appeal to fund a major redevelopment of the Hospital. We received a great response from our supporters and donors raising £24 million. Work will include an entirely refurbished Main Reception, a new day surgery unit and significant improvements to our existing operating theatres. It will also enable us to open a new building with advanced Imaging facilities and 27 consulting rooms.
It is thanks to the generosity of one legator that we have been able to open an outpatient Ophthalmology Unit, providing a first class facility for diagnosing eye diseases and treating problems with vision. The opening of the Ophthalmology Unit has enabled the Hospital to treat over eight hundred patients since it opened in January 2018 and ensuring that patients enjoy a seamless progression through imagery, diagnosis and treatment.
Your donations, large and small have also enabled the Hospital to purchase a new CT (computerised tomography) scanner. It diagnoses problems painlessly and is much less invasive than an angiogram, improving the comfort of our patients and reducing the time they spend in the Imaging department.
Your funding has enabled us to do so much, but we need to do more.
Our commitment to the Armed Forces and the veteran community has been demonstrated by the opening in 2017 of the Centre for Veterans’ Health at the Charterhouse in Weymouth Street. The Centre also houses our ground –breaking Veterans’ Pain Management Programme.
There are many ways in which you can support the great work of the Hospital. From organising a fundraising event to leaving a gift in your Will, your contribution will directly support the care provided to veterans of the Armed Forces.
