1500 Miles ...... 10 Days!

To raise money for the Broomfield’s ICU appeal, 4 amateur cyclists from the ICU and operating theatres will set out from the Hospital on the 2nd of July and ride to John O’Groats …. then turn round and ride back.

You’ll be able to follow their progress on the site as each rider will be keeping a diary on his blog page , all the ups and downs along with the odd photo.

We're off at 09.30 sharp on the 2nd of July, from Broomfield Hospital.

If you would like to donate to our appeal there are two options, Click on The Giving Machine logo and register, then choose “Broomfield ICU Bike Ride” as your charity of choice, then every time you shop on line through “The Giving Machine” the retailers you use, donate a percentage of what you’ve spend to us, or use the Just Giving logo simple .... and thank you for your support.

Broomfield Hospital's Intensive Care Unit

The simple truth is that anyone might end up as a patient in Intensive Care.
Broomfield Hospital Intensive Care Unit admits over 600 adult patients per year with a wide range of conditions including pneumonia, meningitis, major
trauma and cancer surgery. We provide a service for the people of Mid Essex but we also admit patients from other parts of the South East. Our survival rates compare very well
with other ICUs and we are one of the best performers nationally (validated data). Our doctors, nurses, therapists and technicians work together in a patient-focused manner and practice evidence-based medicine.
Despite our success, we understand that if we are to improve further then more effort and investment is required. Help us to develop further by supporting our Broomfield Hospital Intensive Care Unit Appeal.


The Appeal

We aim to raise £100,000 in order to purchase vital equipment for the ICU.
The centerpiece of the campaign is a clinical information system, known as Metavision.

This computer system allows us to chart clinical data quickly, accurately and efficiently. Not only can more time can be spent looking after the patient in the bed but trends of deterioration can be identified and treated earlier.

Treating patients as soon as things deteriorate means a better chance of recovery.
Other equipment to be purchased includes infusion devices that deliver life-saving medicines accurately and safely, a cerebral function monitor that allows us to monitor brain activity, and a machine that measures the efficiency of every heart beat.
