Charity

This year we’re supporting Neurocare!

Neurocare raises money for the Neurosciences and Neurology department at the Royal Hallamshire Hopsital (RHH), the Northern General Hospital (NGH), the Sheffield Children’s Hospital (SCH) and the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN).

Neurocare have been helping neurology patients in Sheffield’s hospitals since the early 1980’s, by working with local neurospecialists in identifying and helping to fund equipment and facilities that put Sheffield at the leading edge of neurological treatment and care.

The charity was founded by neurospecialists Robert Battersby and Jan Mundy, they proposed that if they could raise just half of the money they needed for vital life-saving equipment, the hospital could cover the rest. They continue to help patients through local projects.

Current Neurocare projects include:

  • Air Multiplyer Fans – they will give neurosurgery patients a better chance of a good recovery by regulating their temperature when they physiologically can’t.

 

Previous Neurocare projects include:

  • The ROSA robot, an innovative surgical robot designed to increase the safety and reliability of various neurological procedures without compromising established surgical protocols.
  • Multiple Sclerosis research conducted by David Paling.
  • Actiwatch, these watches are used for monitoring sleep patterns in children with narcolepsy at SCH Sleep Clinic.
  • Omnilog, the Omnilog system allows researchers to metabolically profile multiple metabolic cellular pathway activities simultaneously in a single experiment.
  • Functional MRI at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital
  • Stoke Vaccine Research
