Neurocare - Lets get our heads together

27th August 2014

Neurocare raises money to buy life-saving equipment and facilities for use in the Neuro theatres of Sheffield's Royal Hallamshire Hospital.

We also fund research projects and specialist training so that people suffering from Neurological conditions can receive the best care available. The Neurosciences Department has a local catchment area for adults which covers a population of about 2.5 million and treats patients with Neurological conditions such as Brain Tumours, Head Injuries, Diseases of the Nervous System, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, Motor Neurone Disease, Alzheimer's Disease, Epilepsy, Cancers of the Nervous System and Strokes. Neurocare is involved in research projects into degenerative conditions such as Motor Neurone Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's. This includes research which is described as Translational Research and includes work carried out by SITraN (Sheffield Institute of Translational Neuroscience) looking at why and how cells generate conditions and how to find ways to prevent them. The research carried out at SITraN has the potential to make a major impact on the visibility of neurodegenerative diseases in the UK and bring new treatments and hope to patients and carers. The Neurocare team organise various fundraising events which pay for these innovations in medical care and equipment and the facilities for patients and their families. As well as organising events we raise funds through our shop and trolleys in the Royal Hallamshire Hospital selling brand new books, toys and giftware. We have a great network of both individual and corporate supporters who help to generate a large amount of our income and due to the nature of the charity's work this has developed into its own community which is constantly growing.
