Imperial College Healthcare Charity is an independent charity raising funds for research and projects that help improve patient healthcare at the five London hospitals of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust: Charing Cross, Hammersmith, Queen Charlotte's & Chelsea, St Mary's and Western Eye hospitals.
Our current projects include the More Smiles Appeal, which aims to raise at least £2 million for the children's intensive care unit at St Mary's Hospital. We've recently awarded £3.5 million to renovate A&E at St Mary's, as well as £7.2 million to upgrade outpatient areas at Hammersmith, Charing Cross and Western Eye hospitals.
