Story

thank you for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

The DREAME fund is the charitable fund dedicated to the Integrated Critical Care Unit (ICCU) at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.  By providing the more holistic elements of patient care, the fund helps patients and their relatives to cope both physically and psychologically with the extreme stresses placed upon them in such circumstances 

The work of the ICCU is to provide care for adult patients with conditions and severity of illness that require more complex care than can be given in an ordinary ward.  Most patients looked after in ICCU undergo major surgery (planned and emergency) for life-threatening conditions of the liver, pancreas, gallbladder and main arteries of the chest and abdomen. 

Other patients cared for include those undergoing major head and neck surgery, bladder surgery and transplantation surgery of the liver, pancreas and kidney. We also look after patients with bone marrow transplants, severe infections, complex heart and lung conditions and a variety of other major illnesses. Often patients are referred to the Freeman for specialist treatment not available in most hospitals elsewhere in the Northern region.

If you would like to support us by organising a fundraising event, we'd love to hear from you. Please contact our charitable funds office on charity.matters@nuth.nhs.uk or phone 0191 213 7235.

Thank you so much for your support.
