Who We Are
LHCH Charity was established in 1995 to support the work of the Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, one of the largest specialist heart and chest specialist hospitals in the UK. Based at Broadgreen in Liverpool the hospital treats over 115,000 people each and every year for a variety of complex heart and lung problems.
Since our founding we have raised millions of pounds to help our dedicated medical staff, provide additional facilities for our patients, their families and our staff as well as assisting our researchers to find new ways of treating and curing heart and lung diseases.
