Mark Taylor I'm raising money for Royal Surrey County Hospital Charity motivated by one of our key staff members (Katrina Phillips) whose daughter from birth has received treatment and ongoing in the RSCH HASTE unit and want to help the Hospital to provide better services, support and equipment to Parents and Children like Katrina and her Daughter at this Hospital.

I felt after the company raised money in the summer of 2018 to donate a TV/DVD player to occupy children having heart scans and meeting the Consultants, Nurses and Fundraising team at the RSCH last year that as the Hospital that treats >260,000 people including many of our Hawco staff and their wider families this was a great cause to get behind and try to raise some money for providing state of the art equipment and redeveloping wards, to investing in staff development and funding innovative research, the charity funds projects that make the biggest impact on the people the hospital treats each year – from babies, to children and young adults, to older people.

All the money I raise will go towards making sure children, young people and their families and carers have the best experience at hospital.

At the moment, if a child or young person needs more intensive observation and nursing care than is possible on a general ward, but not to the point of intensive care, they have to be transferred to hospitals in London. This is because the hospital does not currently have the available facilities to offer this level of care.

The charity wants to fund a state-of-the-art high dependency unit (HDU) so the hospital can care for some of its poorliest children at Royal Surrey County Hospital, keeping children near to their families at this already challenging time.

It’s a great cause, and your donation will help them achieve even more for babies, children and young people. Donating is easy, quick and secure.

Please share with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter – and elsewhere – so I can reach my target and together we can help Royal Surrey County Hospital Charity do more. Thank you! Mark Taylor
