Each year over 200,000 children and young people pass through the doors of hospitals and community health centres throughout Hunter New England, it is your support that assists services in providing the very best care.

Your support will enable the purchase of vial equipment, upgrades to facilities and provide resources to ensure our young patients are treated with the most cutting edge and latest technology in a modern and patient friendly environment.

It is only because of the special members within our community such as you who support our children's hospital, that we are able to deliver world class care to children and young people like six year of Lachlan.

Lachlan was born with a rare congenital condition called Pierre Robin Sequence (PRS) and is a regular visitor to the Children's Hospital. Due to breathing difficulties Lachlan has had multiple surgeries, along with requiring CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) Therapy.

On behalf of the children in our care and their families thank you for making a difference to their lives.
