With all the vital, life-saving work that occurs on a daily basis at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, it can be easy to overlook the environmental factors that can have an impact on wellbeing when coping with recovery, rehabilitation or grief.
Regardless of the high standard of care provided by staff at QEHB, staying in hospital or visiting a family member there can be stressful and difficult to deal with. Having a quiet space to reflect and relax away from the wards can be invaluable when it comes to wellbeing – not just for patients and their families, but for the staff who treat them.
We are lucky at QEHB to have a lot of green space available throughout the site and we are now in the process of transforming these areas through a new Community Orchards and Gardens Project. As part of the project, a variety of new trees has been and will continue to be planted around the site.
These trees will require love and care as they continue to grow and bear fruit, and we are asking for your support to keep our new community orchards and gardens going with the launch of our Sponsor the Trees appeal!
Donate £50 to support this project and keep QEHB a beautiful and relaxing place to visit, stay and work. Whether you want to celebrate an anniversary, remember a loved one or thank a particular ward or department for their care, sponsoring the trees at QEHB is a great way to leave a lasting contribution to the site itself.
We are keen to recognise gifts made to our Sponsor the Trees appeal, so if you’re making a donation please send us a brief message to include on our website about why sponsoring the trees is important to you!
