With your help,
We will raise a further £7m for the Children’s Hospital for Wales. This will fund a number of vital projects for Phase Two, including:
A MRI scanner
An MRI scan can be a daunting experience for anyone but particularly for our young patients. Our MRI Scanner will provide the best possible paediatric imaging available in order in keep the number of scans needed by a patient to a minimum. The scans are also a lot quicker, which is important in ensuring that the resolution of the scan is as clear as possible as any movement from the patient can make the image less clear. In addition to this the Scanner can be designed to provide more of an experience for the child.
A hydrotherapy pool
Hydrotherapy is a form of physiotherapy carried out in a heated purpose-built pool. Currently paediatric patients are treated in the adult hydrotherapy pool, however this is only available for one hour per week. This means that around 500 children who would benefit from hydrotherapy treatment miss out each year. Read more to find out what makes our pool so special.
2 computer-integrated opertating theatres
These state of the art operating theatres are known by surgeons as ‘Theatres of the Future’
The Children’s Hospital for Wales will be one of the very few children’s hospitals in the UK to install such modern equipment. The integrated operating theatres are specially designed and built to treat children, and have several key advantages. Read more about our ‘Theatres of the Future’
Equipment for the new Paediatric Critical Care Unit
We will provide new equipment for the Critical Care Unit that will combine intensive and high dependency care. This specialist equipment is expensive but it is vital that this crucial unit has the most advanced technology available.
It is estimated to cost £1.2million to equip the new Paediatric Critical Care Unit.
An enclosed garden
The Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales will have a wonderful large enclosed garden that will be a safe haven for patients and their families. The garden will be used for leisure, therapy, education and rehabilitation.
