Smile4Wessex is a registered charity committed to providing support for the Wessex Neurological Centre and the patients it cares for. Smile4Wessex Appeals raise funds to provide new equipment and facilities that would not otherwise be available, and to sponsor pioneering research into new treatments for a variety of neurological conditions.
Previously funded projects include a dedicated neurological intensive care ambulance, a Paediatric Video-Telemetry Suite which is used to assess children with severe epilepsy for life-changing corrective surgery, the first UK installation of a new generation of a state-of-the-art neurosurgical operating microscope fitted with Fluorescence Imaging technology, and sophisticated Intra-Operative Nerve Monitoring equipment. Research sponsored by Smile4Wessex includes the Brain Pulse Project, which is currently evaluating a non-invasive method for measuring Intra-Cranial Pressure (ICP) using intra-aural pressure waves, crucial to the diagnosis of a wide range of neurological conditions and injuries.
The charity’s most recent appeal has co-funded the development of the Smile4Wessex Children’s Neurosciences Centre, a world-class facility for the treatment of children with a wide-range of acute neurological disorders. Phase 1 has delivered a new six-bed ward (including two high-dependency beds), a single side room for those at high risk of infection, and relocated Paediatric Video-Telemetry Suite. The new Centre provides a much needed increase in capacity, as well as a spacious, brighter and more welcoming environment for the youngsters who often spend extended periods on the ward as they undergo treatment. Phase 2 of the project is providing a dedicated playroom with sophisticated interactive sensory equipment designed specifically to stimulate children and aid rehabilitation, as well as enhanced ancillary facilities for patients, parents and staff.
