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.
CW+ COVID-19 RESPONSE FUND
In March 2020, CW+ launched a dedicated Rapid Response Fund to help our staff provide the best possible care during the COVID-19 outbreak across our communities. Generous contributions to the fund have helped us to support our hospitals in three key areas: new equipment, new technology and crucial support for frontline staff.

We asked clinicians and hospital staff about their experience of the Coronavirus outbreak, and what the generous support from our donors means to them. Every week, we’ll be sharing a new message – watch the video below from Bev Haffenden, Paediatric Emergency Department Nurse at West Middlesex University Hospital:
