ABOUT ROYAL MANCHESTER CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL CHARITY:
Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital receives over 260,000 patient visits every year. For those children and their families it can be a very difficult time but with your help, we can make it better for every child. The support that Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital provides helps families to stay together and support one another during what can be a very difficult time for them.
Our charity is about making a difference to the thousands of children we see every year. We do this by supporting projects that provide state-of-the-art and specialised equipment to help improve the diagnosis and treatment of children. We also support research that can help us to better understand children’s illnesses and provide the treatments of the future and we support projects that help to create a more child-friendly environment.
We want to ensure that not only is Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital the largest children’s hospital in the country - but one of the best.
To do this we need your help.
