Chris Leslie MP visits the Charity

Thanks to Chris Leslie, Labour & Cooperative MP for Nottingham East, who visited the Charity on Friday 22nd January.

He met with Caroline Spencer to talk about her life with Cystic Fibrosis and the difference the Charity funded Wolfson Cystic Fibrosis Centre has made.

Read Chris’ update below:

“On Friday I met with Barbara Cathcart, Chief Executive of Nottingham Hospitals Charity. The charity works with local hospitals to fundraise for new facilities, specialist equipment, local medical research and staff development. We discussed the charity’s current and future projects, including their Helipad Appeal, which aims to raise money to fund a new onsite helipad at Queen’s Medical Centre. An onsite helipad which will save vital minutes when air ambulance patients are brought to QMC, which is the Major Trauma Centre for the East Midlands.

“Barbara arranged for me to pop in to meet with Caroline one of the patients at the Cystic Fibrosis Unit which the charity helped fund with over £2million of support, so it was good to hear the enthusiasm of patients who have benefited from improved facilities because of this excellent fundraising effort.”
