Support the heroes supporting us
The coronavirus pandemic has affected every department and staff member at University Hospital Southampton like never before. And we’re immensely proud of how our colleagues have gone above and beyond every day since the outbreak began, to save lives.
That’s why we’re ensuring that your donation to our coronavirus appeal is going towards the wellbeing of our staff and patients.
Through your donations, we are already making a difference by quickly responding to their immediate needs. But we need your help to continue to provide this support.
Every donation we receive for this appeal has meant we could provide:
- Ongoing psychological support for our staff who need it and continued professional development for our team of outstanding and committed psychologists so that they can best provide this support
- Wellbeing rooms for our staff to take a break away from the ward environment with refreshments and support on hand
- iPads for staff and patients to communicate with their loved ones
- As some patients are unable to receive visitors, we funded an enhanced patient entertainment system so that they don’t have to worry about the cost of accessing a television and will feel less isolated
- Bereavement care boxes containing support information for families who may have lost a loved one
- Care packs for vulnerable patients who are being discharged from hospital but may need to isolate or are unable to access key items immediately, helping to make the patient experience a little better
Read the most up-to-date information on what we have bought with your donations here.
We are now also exploring:
- Improvements to all staff rooms around the hospital
- Re-development of green spaces around the hospital so staff and patients can enjoy the outdoors and nature whenever possible
- And much more…

I was here for eight weeks in the high dependency unit and the dedication of the staff here was second to none. I have nothing but admiration for all of them and I do wish them well in these very very hard times.” Terry Matthews
