Time for Change Campaign

help us raise £5m by 2024

Support us looking after the sickest children and their families
Our teams are outstanding, but are facilities are not.
Together we could....

St George’s is home to one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country, with paediatric services rated outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

We are the people that parents rely on when the worst happens to their children.

Our outstanding care is world renowned. But our facilities are not.

Built in the 70s, our wards are tired, cramped and uninviting. Lacking space, our Paediatric Intensive Care Unit is unable to treat the number of children who need its world-class care. We’re proud to have staff that are some of the most talented and dedicated in the country. However, in desperate need of space, our staff have given up their changing facilities and staff rooms to make way for more beds. This is not sustainable.

Help us to raise £5m by 2024 to transform children’s services at St George’s.

  • creating additional world class facilities for the sickest children

  • into bright, welcoming spaces; a home from home for sick childrenn and their families

  • for our staff who work tirelessly to provide outstanding care.

  • and help us transform Children's Services at St. George's Hospital
