Welcome to Brighter Futures

Brighter Futures is the registered charity of Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and supports services at Great Western Hospital in Swindon and in our community sites across Wiltshire, including Savernake Hospital in Marlborough, Chippenham Hospital and Malmesbury Health Centre.

We aim to raise funds to support an extraordinary provision of care to our patients.

Our charity funds the purchase of equipment, supports education for our staff, and improves the environment for our staff and patients - all of which are over and above the existing NHS budget.

Our vision is to provide the best care possible to our patients, their families and visitors to the Trust.

We rely completely on the generosity of our supporters to enable us to provide that extraordinary provision of care.

Brighter Futuresí fundraising appeal launched to help bring radiotherapy cancer treatment to GWH

A new £2.9 million fundraising appeal to bring radiotherapy treatment to the Great Western Hospital (GWH) in Swindon launched on Thursday 28 May 2015, supporting plans to bring cancer treatment closer to home for the 340,000 people living in the Swindon and Wiltshire area.

The appeal by Brighter Futures, Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trustís charity, will fund two linear accelerators, which will deliver the treatment provided by Oxford University Hospitals Trust (OUH) in a new radiotherapy centre.

Currently around 3,000 people are diagnosed with some form of cancer each year at GWH. In 2013/14 around 700 patients made the 70 mile round-trip to OUHís Churchill Hospital in Oxford for radiotherapy. Treatment usually lasts for four to seven weeks, made up of daily visits.

While the expansion of the OUH service is subject to a final approval process, the planning stages are well advanced and it is envisaged that treatment could be available locally by the end of 2017.
