About Wythenshawe Hospital Transplant Fund (New Start)

The unit at Wythenshawe is now over 30 years old and has carried out to date over 1200 Heart, Lung, and Heart and Lung transplants.

We are only one of 5 units nationally, which covers the whole of the northwest region and into north and mid wales, a catchment population area of over 6 million

The unit carries out on average 60 Transplants a year.

New Start funded the first 10 transplants and partly funded the building of the Transplant Centre and four bungalows for relatives to stay in.

More recently it funds the extra bits the NHS can’t provide

·      £60k for 2 ECMO machines – life support used after transplant

·      80k for refurbishment of the bungalows

·      Fund free TV for patients whilst on the Coronary Care Unit  

·      £125K to purchase 5 kits for the Organ Care System which allows the team to transport hearts from donors after cardiac death, which wouldn’t previously be considered.

·      Crisis intervention funding for patients struggling financially - for example hotels for relatives, stairlifts

·      Research into research

·      £16K providing bed settees for our Bungalows

·      £7K for dietetics Equipment

None of this would be possible without public donations 


All our funding is by voluntary contributions mostly from recipients, their families and friends in various ways. We can assist you with any fundraising tools such as Banners, Collection Boxes and T-shirts.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
