It’s been quite a busy year for Imperial Health Charity. More than £8 million awarded to fund healthcare projects at the Trust, Arts Council accreditation for our growing hospital art collection and more people than ever before supporting our work through fundraising.
Now you can find out how our work across grants, arts, volunteering and fundraising is making a real difference in our hospitals.
Our new Impact Report shines the spotlight on our greatest achievements over the last 12 months, demonstrating the many ways we are improving the hospital experience for patients and staff.
The report features the major redevelopment projects we’ve funded, from the multi-million-pound upgrade to the emergency department at St Mary’s to the full refurbishment of the Riverside operating theatres at Charing Cross.
But it also demonstrates how the charity is changing individual lives by exploring some of the unique and uplifting stories that have emerged from our work.
Allergy sufferer Seema is one of those patients who has benefited from the charity’s support over the last year. Seema, 18, was diagnosed with severe eczema and milk allergy at an early age and receives regular care at St Mary’s Hospital.
Thanks to funding from the charity, Seema has been able to help educate parents, teachers and healthcare professionals about allergic disease through the Terrific Teens project.
Our £50,000 grant has given young people with severe allergies the chance to share their experiences in short, educational films.
