The Brompton Fountain is a charity supporting children and young people with serious, often life threatening, medical conditions who are under the care of Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals, who make up the largest specialist heart and lung centre in the UK.Our support also extends to their families as we understand how having a child with a health condition can impact on the whole family.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We work closely with the hospital teams within the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, children’s wards, outpatient clinics and school to ensure support is given from the point of diagnosis onwards.
We help families both practically and emotionally while on the wards and also once they are at home, through the provision of additional services, vital resources and pieces of equipment that are outside of the NHS remit.
The Brompton Fountain was registered as a charity with the Charity Commission of England and Wales in 2005. We are extremely proud to have supported thousands of families and made a huge difference to the hospital facilities and environment available to patients and parents throughout this time.
The following objectives are central to our ongoing strategy and core values:
• To provide information for parents and families of children undergoing treatment within Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals.
• To provide a support network for parents and families of children undergoing treatment within Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals.
• To help ensure a comfortable and relaxing environment for families whilst their child is receiving care as an inpatient in the Royal Brompton Hospital.
• To act as advocates for parents and families of children undergoing treatment within Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals.
We thank Lord Borwick, our founding Chairman, for his support throughout the charity’s creation, giving us the foundation to grow and develop to where we are today.
