Oxfordshire Heartfelt Appeal Open Day

Why not join us on Saturday 19 October for our Heart Centre Open Day? There will be a series of talks from leading heart and lung clinicians as we celebrate ten years of the Oxford Heart Centre. It's free to attend, but we ask you to book your place by calling 01865 743 444 or using the button at the bottom of the page.

Thank you for visiting our Oxfordshire Heartfelt Appeal. 
 
The Oxfordshire Heartfelt Appeal is raising funds to help make a difference for heart and lung patients treated at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and the Horton General in Banbury.
 
With your help we can fund the very best medical equipment and facilities  to help cardiothoracic patients across Oxfordshire. Your donations and fundraising will make all the difference.
 
This year the Oxford Heart Centre celebrates ten years of bringing the best cardiac and thoracic care to the region. 
 
The centre opened in October 2009, bringing world class 24/7 emergency care to the county and £2 million was raised to help equip the new centre with the best available medical technology.
 
Ten years on we want to celebrate this important moment and also raise new funds to keep the centre at the forefront of medical technology.
 
Technology has advanced dramatically in the past decade (just think of how much the camera in your phone has developed) so we’re working with the team on a plan to replace the original catheter laboratory cameras with new state-of-the-art versions.
 
These images are key as they guide the cardiology team during procedures as well as giving additional benefits for research and training.
 
We also hope to fund new equipment to identify when a patient’s blood is at risk of not clotting properly and specialist rehabilitation equipment to help patients following surgery.

You can make a donation, fundraise for us, organise an event or get a local club, company or group involved.
