We Need Your Support

DDRC Healthcare is a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity. We have been working hard since 1980 to achieve our charitable aims. We generate our own income, but we also rely upon donations and gifts to help make a difference, for example by improving the patient experience or enhancing diver safety.

We are currently funded by the NHS, for our emergency and routine patients, but as with all NHS funding, this is always being reviewed.

However, we also firmly believe that, as a charity, we have a commitment to our charitable objectives in supporting Treatment, Education and Research and an information sheet explaining how donations support these charitable objectives can be found here.

Due to the amazing fundraising support we receive we have been able to update some vital pieces of equipment including a new heart monitor, ventilator and syringe drivers. This allows us to work at the highest level and enables us to treat patients who may require intensive care support. Our patient care is delivered by a team of highly skilled hyperbaric doctors, nurses and chamber staff and we feel proud of the level of expertise we can offer.

You can HELP US and there are MANY ways to give us your valuable support.
