We are all looking out for each other. Our staff are working hard to get through this. Remember to stay safe and stay at home unless you really need to go out.

Making a difference to health in Hackney

Although Homerton is funded by the NHS, the Homerton Hope charity allows us to raise funds over and above NHS provision, to further enhance our services and make our patients' experience even better.

Funds raised by Homerton Hope help to pay for additional equipment, research and innovations, as well as finishing touches and 'extras' that complement the existing high quality care for patients at the Hospital.

For example, Homerton Hope has: contributed towards the cost of creating family rooms for parents of pre-term babies to stay in overnight, funded a leisure co-ordinator post to help brain-damaged patients in rehabilitation and paid for artworks to brighten public spaces in the Hospital.

We are very grateful to the patients and families, companies and community organisations who make donations, leave legacies, organise their own events, or take part in marathons and treks to raise funds.
