Neurocare is a charity that raises money for the Neurosciences and Neurology departments at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, the Northern General Hospital, the Sheffield Children’s Hospital and the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN).
We have raised significant funds to buy equipment and support research to save and improve the lives of patients with a range of debilitating or potentially fatal neurological conditions.
How it all began…
Our Charity, founded by neurospecialists Robert Battersby and Jan Mundy, started from a simple wish to help those most in need. They found that they knew exactly what was needed to help, but their efforts were held back only by a lack of funding. Not giving up so easily, Drs. Battersby and Mundy proposed that if they could raise just half of the money they needed for vital life-saving equipment; the hospital could cover the rest.
This landmark project was the first of many successful local fundraising campaigns in Yorkshire. This was the beginning of Neurocare.
We have continued to help patients through our local projects from the early 1980s up until 1997, when we established ourselves as a recognised and dedicated charity.
