Your impact Supporting staff The difference you make Make a difference today There are so many ways that donations touch the lives of patients, carers and staff. Donations support patients of all ages including babies, children and adults. We've listed just a few examples. To find out how you could make a lasting difference and support our charity please get in touch. Medical equipment A charity legacy funded a major refurbishment of the Trust’s Cardiac Catheterization or 'Cath Lab' at Tunbridge Wells Hospital and purchased an x ray and hemodynamic system. The equipment has improved diagnostics and also led to patients requiring lower doses of radiation. A major gift from a supporter purchased equipment for diagnosing and treating urological cancers, including ultrasound machines, a bladder scanner, cystoscopy scopes and renewal of surgical instruments. By using this equipment our Kent Cancer Centre can continue to provide world-class cancer treatment to our patients whilst greatly reducing the risk of infection. Phototherapy systems purchased for our Neonatal Unit provide high-intensity phototherapy for effective treatment of jaundice and hyperbilirubinemia in babies. Non-medical equipment & furnishings Donations funded a water cooler at Maidstone Hospital to help support the hydration of new and expectant parents. It is also helping to support the health and wellbeing of staff members who look after families.

The charity has also purchased waiting room chairs, restaurant furniture and picnic benches. Technology Thanks to donations a video messaging service at our Neonatal Unit called 'Vcreate' supports families who are unable to be with their baby in hospital. Families receive secure videos and pictures which build up into a video diary.
