We are delighted to open our new charity hub in the West Wing of the John Radcliffe. Come to the entrance of the Children's Hospital and say hello - we would love to see you!

A ribbon-cutting ceremony with young patient, Kaiden Edwards and Trust CEO, Meghana Pandit took place on July 15th, to mark the official opening.

We are incredibly proud of the important work Oxford Hospitals Charity does across our NHS Trust - funding millions of pounds of support every year to make such a difference for patients and their families, as well as the hospital staff.

However, until now we haven't had a base in the heart of the hospitals to showcase what we do and be on hand to react really quickly to the needs across wards and departments.

But thanks to the kind support of The Hospital Company, our NHS Trust and a grant from NHS Charities Together we are now delighted to have the first of our hospital hubs open for business.

Do come and say hello to us in the West Wing of the John Radcliffe, by the main entrance to the Children's Hospital.

We're open 9 - 3pm every weekday, here to tell you more about the charity, help you make a donation, sign up to a charity event or simply find out more about the work of our special charity.

We have activities for children visiting hospital to help keep them occupied, lots of charity merchandise for you to explore and are also on hand to talk to hospital staff about the many ways the charity can help patients and staff in their area.

Meet Jamie

Hello, I am  Jamie, the Hospital Engagement Manager at Oxford Hospitals Charity. I joined the team just in time for Christmas 2023, having worked in our hospital Trust since 2012.  So straight away it was sleeves rolled up and out and about at one of the charity's busiest times of the year.

It's so exciting to be part of our new Hospital Engagement team - with the big aim of bringing an onsite charity presence across the four hospital sites. 

I'm thrilled that we have now launched our new Charity Hub at the Oxford Children’s Hospital. Being part of the busy day-to-day life of our hospitals provides me with the wonderful privilege of meeting our patients, visitors, and staff, as well as seeing the immediate impact of our charity projects. 

I’m a local lad with links with all our hospitals through family, friends and as a patient myself. You’re likely to see me onsite at the hub, out and about visiting departments to discuss projects or working with our amazing volunteers to share our charity story. Please do stop and say hello!

Meet Lynn

I am the Hospital Engagement Officer at the Charity. I joined the team in May of this year - having worked in other roles across the hospitals. 

I'm already absolutely loving it! It is such a privilege to be here making a difference, supporting patients and their families, helping visitors and advising staff about how the charity can make a difference for them too.

 Most of all being able to make a child smile or reassure a patient feels incredibly special. As a local person I knew a little about the charity, but since joining the team I am blown away about just how much good they do in our hospitals and I can't wait to tell more people about it!

With your vital support, we can transform the hospitals that care for you and your loved ones.
