da Vinci Surgical Robot

We are now looking to raise the funds to purchase a new robot

With the aid of this new robot we hope that Mid Essex Hospitals will remain as a centre of excellence in the UK, helping to transform the lives of thousands of patients within Mid Essex, Basildon, Southend and surrounding areas, as well as looking to expand the area of robotic surgery to both our partner Trusts.

The Dignity Project

We strongly believe that the Dignity Project provides an invaluable contribution to the wellbeing of our patients but also their self-worth and recovery.

Our Charity is fundraising to clothe our patients when they do not have any of their own to wear. We have patients arriving by blue light, some  patients have no family or friends so their clothes aren’t accessible and then there are those whom have to spend a prolonged period of time on the wards and they simply just do not have enough clothing for every day. This is an on-going project of which Our Charity continuously supports.

Wi-fi Project

Using Wi-fi to help our patients and their relatives stay connected when they need it most.

At Broomfield Hospital we acknowledge that we are situated in an area with relatively poor mobile phone signal; so Our Charity need YOUR help to fundraise for an exciting new project to keep our patients, their families and friends connected whilst with us.

We understand how important it is to be able to get in touch with family and friends, even work colleagues whether you’re a patient in hospital or visiting someone who is. So Our Charity has plans in place to set up free of charge patient Wi-Fi, accessible anywhere, anytime, because we believe that sometimes a simple message can be the most important form of communication in times of need.

Being in hospital can often be an isolating and daunting experience, especially when family and friends are far away; we recognise that, particularly in an age of increasing connectivity, the ability to talk to loved ones is invaluable so the funding of this project is extremely important to us.
