Horton General Hospital Charity

The Horton General Hospital serves around 180,000 people from Banbury and surrounding areas. This population has shown what regard it has for its local general hospital through the generosity toward the Horton Fund and the Brodey Cancer Centre Extension Appeal.

The Horton General Hospital Charity helps to enhance the hospital environment, fund research and purchase equipment that makes a real difference to patients, as well as contributing to staff development and training - going above and beyond that which standard NHS budgets can achieve.

The Horton General Hospital Charity is part of Oxford Hospitals Charity (reg charity 1175809). Your support can make a difference to the areas of greatest need across the Horton or you can suggest a specific ward or area you wish your donation to help.

The Brodey Cancer Centre

The Brodey Cancer Centre treats patients with cancer. The centre has three oncologists who hold regular weekly outpatient clinics and a palliative care team - a full time nurse and visiting consultant from Katharine House Hospice - is based in the department.

The Brodey Cancer Centre originally opened part time in August 1998, with one chemotherapy trained nurse and a breast care nurse.

It was the inspiration of, and partly funded by, the family of a local businessman, Ian Brodey, who had been treated for a haematological malignancy at the Horton General Hospital.

His family donated generously in his name, and the department has grown from strength to strength.

Carla's story

Carla Salvatore

14 year old Carla Salvatore from Banbury swam for eight hours in aid of the Critical Care Unit at the Horton General Hospital.

The sponsored swim in memory of Carla's grandmother, who passed away on the unit, raised over £1,100.

Maria Salvatore, Carla's mother, said: "Her nan would be over the moon and so proud and pleased with what she did. The CCU was so good, very helpful, friendly and positive and Carla was eager to give something back."

Yolanda Jacob, Fundraising Project Manager at the Horton said: "We are incredibly grateful for Carla's support, an eight hour swim is a real challenge and to raise such a large sum at Carla's age is admirable".
