The Newcastle Urology Fund

The Newcastle Urology Fund supports Newcastle Urology based at the Freeman Hospital. Charitable donations complement NHS resources and enable us to keep pace with continual developments in medical equipment and care, allowing us to achieve things more quickly than would otherwise have been possible. They also allow us to purchase little extra comforts to reduce stresses and anxieties, and engage patients, keeping them active and encouraging social interactivity with creative tools.

The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Charity are extremely grateful for the many contributions that it receives, irrespective of the value, as it provides an indication as to the standard of service provided by our local hospitals and the esteem in which they are held. Such support helps us to ensure that we not merely maintain the current level of service provided but enhance and improve treatment and care of future patients.

The aim of the Newcastle Urology Fund is to improve the care of patients who are suffering with urological conditions. The fund will provide extra comforts, equipment and services above and beyond what the Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Foundation Trust provides. We aim to do this through:

• Investment in research

• Training

• Information provisions for patients
