What is the appeal about?

Southampton Children's Hospital Charity needs to build a new Children's Emergency and Trauma Department which will replace the existing Children's Emergency Department. This will not be possible without your help. 

Southampton Children’s Hospital Charity are working in partnership with The Murray Parish Trust (a charity formed by actress Sarah Parish and her actor husband James Murray in memory of their late daughter Ella-Jayne) to raise £2 million. 

The new department will cost £4.8 million. The fundraising of £2 million will coincide with £2 million worth of match funding granted to the hospital by the Government, as well as £800,000 already allocated by University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, allowing us to finally make this critical ambition a reality.

This will see the development of a state-of-the-art eight bed observation area, 11 glass-fronted and sound proof cubicles and on-hand x-ray facilities. It will also include the creation of a reception, triage and waiting area for young patients, access to resuscitation facilities via a new link corridor, a nurse practitioner room, and will incorporate the children's assessment unit.
