Refurbishing our trauma and orthopaedic ward

The Southampton Children’s trauma and orthopaedic ward on G3 is a special place. But we need your help to refurbish it and make it even more special.

With your support, we aim to raise £1.64 million to make sure it is fit for the amazing children we treat, their wonderful families, and our brilliant staff who care for them.

As one of only two major trauma centres in the South of England, Southampton Children’s Hospital cares for children across the region who have suffered a serious head, chest, or skeletal injury. In addition, our trauma and orthopaedic ward treats everything from broken bones to providing life-changing surgery, as well as caring for children with cerebral palsy and neuromuscular disorders.

Working in partnership with the Trust, Southampton Hospitals Charity is committed to supporting all aspects of this much need ward refurbishment, which will be the first of its kind since the ward was built.

Your support could help us to fund a pull-down bed so all parents can have a comfortable stay next to their child, hoists that will allow the medical team to move patients more independently and safely, and a dedicated therapy room to provide rehabilitation.

And because it’s a tough time for parents too, we want them to have their own dedicated room – a comforting space where they can recharge, connect with other parents, and take comfort from one another.

Your donations can help keep our trauma and orthopaedic ward world class, giving children the highest standard of emergency and planned care.

We see our trauma and orthopaedic ward as a team, and to keep ours running at a world class level, we need another member. You.

So, are you ready to join the team?
