Last year one of the Directors of Creative Play spent a long time in the care of the fantastic nurses, doctors and consultants of the respiratory ward in the Countess of Chester Hospital.
James has only recently been fully discharged, and after having moments of thinking he wouldn’t ever get of out of there, let alone run or climb again, they managed to fix him!
Due to this James has decided to enter a number of mountain marathons and races this year as a thank you to the respiratory team.
James would like to try and raise as much money for the ward as he can, because without their hard work, he wouldn’t be able to do this.
So far James has entered into the Excalibur Mountain Marathon In May, the Snowdon Mountain Race in July and Glen Coe Ring of Steall race in September and will continue to enter other events that arise.
James would really appreciate your help in raising as much money as possible to support the wonderful work they do.
See below some information about the ward and what the money James is wanting to raise will contribute to.
About Countess of Chester Hospital’s Respiratory Team
The Countess of Chester Hospital has a dedicated Respiratory unit team which consists of four consultants supported by a team of medical staff, Specialist Nurses and a Physiotherapist. The Respiratory Fund is used to purchase equipment and fund courses for staff which are over and above core NHS funding. There is an outpatient service as well as an impatient ward care.
The Countess Charity exists not to fund patient care, but to enhance and improve it by providing grants for projects that our clinical colleagues have identified and that are over and above those provided by core NHS funding. The community’s generous support will enable them to ensure that they continue to provide the very best facilities for future patients at their hospital.
Recent improvements include:
- New patient chairs for the Stroke Unit
- A new television for patients at Ellesmere Port Hospital
- Refurbishment of the Children Theatre Recovery Area
- A portable Cardiac Scanner
- New sofas for parents in the Neonatal Unit

Thank you in advance.
