The Blood Fund

Supporting the department of Haematology at Hammersmith Hospital
The Haematology department at Hammersmith Hospital is world-renowned for its research and exceptional care for patients with a wide variety of blood disorders, including leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma, sickle cell disease and haemophilia.

Over the next year, we’re aiming to raise £250,000 for The Blood Fund, Imperial Health Charity’s fundraising campaign for the department. We want to ensure the department can continue to provide exceptional care to its patients by funding three key areas:

Clinical Research

We offer our patients new treatments through ethically approved clinical trials, which are the best way to assess the benefits of these exciting new therapies in a safe and regulated environment. We are limited in the number of trials we can offer because of a shortage of highly-skilled research nurses. Money raised through The Blood Fund will mean more nurses, so we can carry out more vital research.

Patient care

We want to increase the number of Clinical Nurse Specialists who provide personal care and expert advice in specific diseases, make our outpatient waiting areas more comfortable with new seating, television screens and artwork to create a better environment for patients.

Support for the doctors and scientists of the future

Funds are urgently needed to allow our younger doctors and scientists to spend more time in the laboratory on research. We want to stimulate these talented young people to develop their careers in blood diseases by giving them time to develop their ideas and prepare grant applications to our national funding bodies.
