Our charity was set up by a team of paediatric doctors more than 30 years ago. We raise money for urgently needed equipment as well as the little extras that make hospital more welcoming for children and families. Based at Chelsea Children's Hospital, we also support West Middlesex Hospital in London.
In recent years we have provided state-of-the-art medical equipment for babies and children including telemetry cameras to help diagnose epilepsy more quickly, vein finders that make blood tests less distressing and a million-pound surgical robot for unparalleled precision during operations.
We help to make hospital a more pleasant place for families by funding everything from beds and kettles for parents to the children's much-loved Christmas party.
Based within Chelsea and Westminster Hospital on Fulham Road, Chelsea Children's Hospital is one of three specialist children's hospitals in London. Together with West Middlesex, we care for over 160,000 children every year, making us one of the biggest providers of children’s medicine in the capital. Our hospitals are centres of paediatric excellence: with your support and generosity we can continue to offer the best care to our children.
We have 11 dedicated trustees who oversee the workings of the charity. They are mainly doctors from the hospital and so are acutely aware of where help is needed.
We have three amazing patrons who work hard to help promote our work:
