Charitable Organisations supported by HFH Private Medical Centre in London
“Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.”
Kathy Calvin, President and Chief Executive Officer of the United Nations Foundation
Harley Fitzrovia Health Private Medical Centre is firmly committed to supporting the less fortunate and the afflicted through its charitable works, and will continue for the foreseeable future. We put aside part of our time, expertise and income in supporting worthwhile projects locally, nationally and internationally. These include support for teaching and training as well as healthcare related charitable organisations.
Each year the team and local colleagues run an annual food festival to support children with cancer and University College London Hospitals cancer charities. This is done locally to help support treatment of affected children and their families. It has proven to be a great success, with significant funds raised to support this. This is normally located in Nelmes Church, Hornchurch around April of each year.
Members of the team also regularly support the Salvation Army with medical advice, health checks and assessments of homeless people in Barking. We also provide support to local mosques as part of their soup kitchen for homeless people in Ilford and Romford.
Under the Leadership of Dr Baldwin, a medical team comprising volunteers from Harley Fitzrovia Health and externally has visited Burma (Myanmar). The inaugural visit in 2012 was to provide teaching and support for Doctors in various medical specialties. This was followed by another visit in 2015 in which a rural health camp was set up to provide care for local villagers and the poor, with in excess of 1500 people having been seen and treated over a 10 day period. Another member of the charity team went to provide cardiac surgery and intervention in the largest hospital in Rangoon.
Further initiatives and visits are planned and support is always required and very welcome.
