The Wessex Neurological Centre Trust
The Wessex Neurological Centre is one of the largest and most highly-regarded neurological units in the UK. The centre, located at Southampton General Hospital, provides acute neurosurgical and neurological care, and caters for a population of around 3 million people across central southern England. The Smile4Wessex Appeal channels funds in support of projects which aim to improve the range and quality of care provided at the Wessex Neurological Centre, and to fund research into conditions of the nervous system. Previously funded projects at the Centre include a dedicated neurological intensive care ambulance, a Paediatric Video-Telemetry Suite (which is used to asses children with severe epilepsy for life-changing corrective surgery) and a state-of-the-art neurosurgical operating microscope fitted with fluorescence imaging technology, a system that enables surgeons to see real-time images of blood-flow in the brain during neurovascular surgery, such as for the clipping of aneurysms. Our most recently completed project saw the charity work in partnership with University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust to create a world-class children's facility, the Smile4Wessex Children's Neurosciences Centre, and we are now working to provide surgeons with the latest in 3D-Endoscopic Neurosurgery systems.

Hi folks!

I cannot think of a better way in which to raise funds for this great charity than to shave off the old and grow some new for 2017.

Four decades ago my life was saved by the unit which S4wessex supports, and so, without hesitation, once more out come the shearers... Though voluntarily this time!

And I shall add photos, proof of having been shaved! If not here then on FB.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

A special thank you to Penny and family for their generous donation

Thank you.
