about Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity

What we do


Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity is a registered charity which supports the excellent work of Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We do this by providing funding for state-of-the-art equipment, new facilities and all the added extras that make people's experience at our hospitals and in our community services the best it can be.

We also provide funding for specialist training for Trust staff, which enhances their skills and helps them to provide even better care to their patients. We couldn't do any of this without the ongoing support, hard work and generosity of our local communities who donate to, and fundraise for, the charity.

Just some of the ways your support makes a difference

New play area for Child and Adolescent Unit

£62k was granted to create a new outside play area for children on CAU. This means poorly children can still spend time outside playing and get some much needed time away from the ward environment.

Reminiscence Interactive Therapy Activity (RITA) units

£31,200 was granted to purchase a number of these high tech units for wards at Leighton Hospital. The units are pre-loaded with films, music, news clips and games and are used to calm, reassure and entertain people living with dementia who are being cared for within our services.

Specialist Infusion Pumps

These state-of-the-art infusion pumps were purchased for the chemotherapy unit at Leighton Hospital. The pumps, which cost £20K, shorten the time people spend on the unit and improve patient comfort and safety.

We provided over £100,000 for equipment to improve patient care during the year

This is In addition to the above and includes equipment for Emergency Care, Paediatrics and Medical Imaging. We exist because we believe that everyone who visits Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust should have an experience that exceeds their expectations.
