Derby Hospitals Charity comprises over 200 separate funds for the benefit of patients and staff and to support and enhance the services provided by Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Wayne will be raising money, through his testimonial year, towards a new sensory play area at Derby Children’s Hospital.

The hospital was purpose-built in 1996 to provide high-quality care for children and young people.

The children’s out-patient department provides excellent care and expert management for all general paediatric medical and surgical conditions, as well as many specialist problems.

The children’s emergency department (accident and emergency) reviews over 25,000 children and young people per year. All patients are seen by trained paediatric staff in child-friendly surroundings.

Children requiring admission are cared for in a family-friendly environment, with parents welcome to stay.

All the wards are supported by play specialists and there is a hospital school during term times.
