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.
What We Do
The latest and the best
From medical equipment to training we ensure that our medical teams are always at the forefront of the most up to date practices.
Extending the excellence
From family rooms, coffee bars and garden spaces - we make the hospital a warm and welcoming environment at a time when people are at their most vulnerable.
Tomorrows medicine today
We support our dedicated researchers in their work to discover the treatments and cures of the future.
With your help we have...
Introduced Robotic Heart & Lung Surgery
Liverpool Heart and Chest is the only hospital in the UK to offer robotic heart and lung surgery.
Helping our patients recover faster and get back home to their loved ones sooner.
Helped to Drive out Delirium
Over 90% of Intensive Care patients in the UK will develop delirium at some point.
Thanks to your help we were able to provide the additional facilities to significantly reduce the potential for our patients to develop delirium.
Provided Dedicated Facilities for Patients with Dementia
For those with dementia or other cognitive disabilities undergoing CT or MRI scans can be a deeply upsetting experience.
That's why LHCH Charity provided a dedicated space for them to ensure that their treatment is as smooth and stress free as possible.
Now we need your help to...
Introduce 3D Imaging to our Theatres
3D imaging is vital to providing our surgeons with the right information before they begin to operate. We want to provide 2 new machines in our theatres to make sure that they have the very best imaging possible.
Support the Training of Medical Staff Now and in the Future
We want to provide the additional facilities that are needed to ensure that our staff are always up to date with the latest developments so that we can play our part in training the medical teams of the future.
Imagine our Future
We are planning to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the NHS by planning a major campaign to provide new, state of the art, CT and MRI Scanners for our new Imaging Centre.
