What We Do

Any money donated is used to purchase equipment or services that will enhance our patients lives but the NHS are unable to provide. Below gives some examples of larger projects we have funded


Some 20 Years ago New Start financed the building of 4 Bungalows in the Grounds of the Hospital for the use of Recipients and their Families. We then paid for a complete refurbishment of them in 2015. They are in great demand and are greatly appreciated by everyone who uses them

LVAD Vests

Recently New Start have purchased some specially designed vests to give to all our LVAD patients. These allow the equipment to be carried in pockets in the vest instead of in the traditional bag, allowing the patient more freedom in movement

ECMO Machines

In January 2015 new Start purchased 2 ECMO machines for use on the Critical Cardio – Thoracic Care Unit..ECMO is used when a patient has a serious condition which prevents the lungs or heart from working normally. An ECMO machine is very similar to the heart and lung machine used during open-heart surgery. It is a supportive measure that uses an artificial lung (the membrane) to oxygenate the blood outside the body (extracorporeal). Read more
