BHOC corridor with artworkWhat we have funded

In 2014, the BHOC was transformed thanks to the £6m Golden Gift Appeal. This included the creation of the first Adult Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) Unit in the South West and refurbishment of the Haematology Unit, which cares for patients with blood cancers and other non-cancer blood disorders. 


In 2009 the CaRE Appeal helped to upgrade the 40-year old hospital to create a modern, warm and welcoming care environment. The main reception area was transformed, and services brought together to offer patients and visitors a sense of holistic care. Dedicated space for supportive services - including nurse specialists, counselling services and specialist psychological treatments was also created in both reception and outpatient areas.
