Raising funds to improve staff and patients experiences at your local hospital 

our story 

George Eliot Hospital Charity was established in 1996 to provide additional funding to support our Trust to provide excellent care to our patients and provide funding to develop staff wellbeing, training and a great working environment. 
 
Furthermore, we want to support the Trust's vision “To Excel at Patient Care”. 
 
To achieve this, we will work together with our local communities, public and corporate partners to fund hospital projects that deliver real results for the people of Nuneaton, Bedworth, North Warwickshire, South West Leicestershire and North Coventry. 
 
What have we funded recently - highlights! 
The Charity have funded a Wellbeing Officer role to support with the wellbeing of our colleagues within the hospital. 
We have also funded a Freedom to Speak up position within the hospital to encourage an open working environment. 
The Charity have been the major funder of the Serenity Garden which is due to be opened in June 2022 for the benefit stroke and dementia patients. 
A ECG tip locator system was purchased for the Oncology team. 
State of the art milk warmers were supplied to the Special Care Baby Unit that don’t require the use of heated water. 
 

An example of what we do 

The Serenity Garden was opened in June 2022 The aim of the garden is to provide essential support to patients’ recovery by providing a safe and purpose-built space where they can gather their thoughts and come to terms with their diagnoses as well as receive physical therapy. 
 
The Serenity Garden is split into two areas. The stroke rehabilitation area helps patients navigate real-world obstacles which mirror navigation around crowded areas, such as ramps and uneven surfaces, in a safe and controlled environment. 
The Dementia therapy area incorporates wheelchair accessible raised flower beds arranged with specially selected plants to stimulate sight, touch, sound, taste and smell. There is also a dementia friendly pathway designed as an infinity loop to provide a sense of direction as patients walk through the area. 
A bespoke lodge sits at the heart of the garden which is able to accommodate hospital beds, wheelchairs and able-bodied patients who can make use of specialist equipment to aid muscle building, concentration and fine motor skills. 
George Eliot Hospital would like to recognise that this project would have not been possible without the generous support of over 160 donors including staff, individuals and businesses in the local and wider community. 
 
Dr Catherine Free, Chief Medical Officer for George Eliot Hospital spoke on what the garden means to staff and patients: - “We are delighted with this garden which is a testament to the passion our staff have for patient care and displays all of the values we have at George Eliot.

THE DIFFERENCE you could make 

We are a not-for-profit charity and rely heavily on the generosity of people and their donations to help as many patients as possible. We have minimal financial support and every £1 could help make a difference to those who need our help 
 
£26 could help us support our amazing George Eliot Hospital staff, who can be feeling pressured, overwhelmed and isolated, including ensuring they have counselling, training and wellbeing activities, so they can continue to provide the lifesaving care we all rely on. 
 
£52 could provide care that is easier to access, and everyone feels supported from when they first seek help, to getting treatment and beyond. £52 could help fund new life-saving and life-changing equipment and technology that will help patients access better healthcare.
