The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Phillip Hammond, has announced in his Autumn Statement that Evelina London Children’s Hospital will receive £2 million of LIBOR funding from the proceeds of banking fines.

This investment will provide funding toward both a new fetal cardiology unit to diagnose heart problems in babies before they are born and long term ventilation, sleep and neuro-rehabilitation facilities to provide care for children with complex, life-limiting conditions. 

Marian Ridley, Director of Evelina London, said: “We are delighted to have received this funding from the Treasury. The long term ventilation, sleep and neuro-rehabilitation facilities will provide high quality care to families in a ‘home from home’ setting. Our new fetal cardiology unit will help us provide specialist fetal scans to 2,200 mothers a year with high risk pregnancies.”

The funds will go towards an ambitious programme of redevelopment at Evelina London.

The £2 million means that, to date, just over £7.5 million has been raised towards a fundraising target of £10 million to help expand our hospital’s clinical facilities, to treat more children and to provide more specialist care.
