Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity

Funding cutting-edge medical equipment

Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals form the UK’s largest and leading specialist centre for the treatment of patients with two of the world’s biggest killers – heart and lung disease.

Their paediatric unit is a national specialist referral centre for children with heart and lung conditions, providing care from before birth, through childhood and into adolescence. And their pioneering research into heart and lung conditions plays a vital role in developing new treatments and improving care for patients.

We’re supporting their critical work with a grant of over £250,000. This will help to upgrade equipment needed to diagnose and treat children and adults with heart and lung conditions. Our contribution will enable the two hospitals to equip their catheter laboratories with the latest imaging equipment. 

  • Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals are known internationally for their expertise, as one of the foremost centres for innovative research.
  • In September 2020, Newsweek ranked Royal Brompton Hospital 10th in the world for cardiology, the only UK hospital to feature in the top 50.
  • The specialist centre provides high-quality services for almost 250,000 patients a year.

Innovative technology for safer procedures

The new technology brings many benefits. These include delivering X-ray images with incredible clarity, helping doctors carry out procedures and giving then the ability to diagnose conditions more effectively. It’s also providing the best imaging at the lowest dose of radiation possible – crucial for staff who are exposed regularly and patients, particularly children.

The new equipment is also supporting important research projects. Doctors carrying out research at the Cath Lab 2 at the Royal Brompton will use the new technology for their projects – which will ultimately deliver better patient care and outcomes.

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals and award a grant of over £250,000 to replace vital equipment to diagnose and treat children and adults with heart and lung conditions.”
