Our Objectives

Our aim is to enhance the provision of first class healthcare and provide benefits for our patients over and above standard NHS provision, across Leighton Hospital, Crewe; Victoria Infirmary, Northwich; Elmhurst Intermediate Care Centre in Winsford and within our community based services.

Thanks to the support of our visitors, patients and local community, through fundraising activities, charitable donations, legacies and voluntary services, Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity makes a fantastic difference to patients, their families and the staff at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

In the last 12 months the charity has funded equipment including:

Purchase of specialist cardiovascular screening software and licence for the MRI scanner to prevent patients having to travel out of area.

 Purchase of a specialist birthing pool for high risk patients in the maternity ward providing
the ability to allow a water-birth with additional monitoring functionality.


In addition to the above, medical equipment to the value of over £100,000 for the improvement of patient care has been purchased during the year, which included equipment for Emergency Care, Paediatrics and Medical Imaging.

We exist because we believe that everyone who visits Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust should have an experience that exceeds their expectations.
