See how we make a difference to patients:
Our art and design programme – which combines digital, visual and performing arts with innovative design – transforms the hospital experience for patients, their families and the staff who care for them.
CW Innovation identifies and delivers new high–impact innovation initiatives and improvements that support the goal of delivering operational excellence, and exceptional patient care and experience in a world-class clinical environment.
Our grants programme awards funding to hospital staff for projects which will help them to deliver better patient experience and care. Learn more about the projects we have funded, and how to apply.

We are delighted to announce that we have reached our £12.5 million Critical Care Campaign target in just two years. Thank you to all our supporters, fundraisers and colleagues who helped to make this campaign a success.
The Critical Care Campaign was launched in 2017 to transform our Adult and Neonatal Intensive Care Units at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Once the project is complete, we will be able to care for an additional 650 critically ill adults and babies each year.
Every Thursday between 1:00pm and 1:45pm, we host a free, public performance to entertain patients, visitors and staff at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. See what’s coming up below
Our children’s inpatient wards at West Middlesex University Hospital care for over 8,000 babies, children and young people every year. Our hospital staff provide excellent care, however the ward environment needs an urgent refurbishment.
We have launched a £150,000 appeal to transform the wards into a bright, fun and welcoming environment for our youngest patients and their parents.
THE AITKEN’S STORY
We have worked with The National Lottery Heritage Fund to explore the history of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, which reaches back 300 years to the original Westminster Hospital.
We have delved into the hospital archives to create and install a permanent exhibition celebrating our hospital’s rich history and exploring three main themes: Charitable Giving, Women in Medicine and Hospital at War.
We were delighted to take part in the latest Digital Health podcast ‘How NHS trusts can encourage innovation’, which was exploring how the NHS can work with innovators to fast-track digital health solutions that not only ease pressure on services, but also empower patients.
