UCLH Charity is the official charity sponsor for Future Healthcare 2018

UCLH Charity has accepted an offer to be the official charity partner for exhibition and conference, Future Healthcare 2018 which is the only UK event dedicated to showcasing healthcare products, services and innovations on a global scale.

The event will take place on 13-14 March 2018 at London’s Olympia and will see over 4,000 attendees from 45 countries – gathering together the world’s leading experts in healthcare to address the biggest challenges facing 21st century healthcare and to consider advances in innovation.

UCLH Charity’s mission is to make a difference for patients at UCLH. This is achieved by funding projects from staff training and development and patient care to clinical research and state of the art equipment at UCLH. A prominent example of this is the funding and development of the Neuromuscular Complex Care Centre at UCLH which provides multi-disciplinary care for those with neuromuscular disease. The centre meant that these patients, who have complex needs can receive treatment in one place and was the first of its kind in the world.

Philip Brading, Chief Executive of the Charity says, “At the conference, I will be giving a talk about ‘Transforming the Patient Experience’ which will focus on how UCLH Charity has used charitable funds across a wide spectrum at UCLH. This ranges from healthcare for the homeless to the application of machine learning to improve outcomes.”

Event Director, Dawn Barclay-Ross commented, “UCLH Charity was a natural choice for us when trying to determine from so many good causes, our 2018 Charity Partner. We look forward to making a contribution to the Charity, and are delighted to have the opportunity to support their good work.”

UCLH Charity will also exhibit at the event alongside their main subsidiary, Queen Square Enterprises (QSE). QSE operate specialist private patient services, most notably in Queen Square for patients seeking specialist neurological care at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

QSE’s facilities include a purpose designed suite of consulting rooms, a 19 bed inpatient ward and the state of the art Queen Square Imaging Centre, a leading MRI facility dedicated to neuroimaging. Profits generated from QSE’s private services are gift aided to the Charity which then makes grants to the hospital for projects which are over and above NHS provision. UCLH has benefitted in excess of £20 million since QSE was formed.
