Broadlight are delighted to be working with Rockinghorse, a Brighton-based charity that has been supporting children for over 50 years.
We have set ourselves the target of fundraising the remaining £75,000 in order to purchase a portable digital X-Ray machine for the TMBU at Royal Sussex Hospital.
Broadlight help organisations transform their performance; the provision and usage of instant X-Ray capability at this baby unit is synonymous with our aspiration to help all organisations achieve efficiency and smooth operations.
Based at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, the Trevor Mann Baby Unit provides intensive care for sick and premature babies.

We’re raising funds for an X-ray Imaging Machine that will provide staff at the TMBU with an instant X-ray image, allowing immediate modification of lines and tubes on a premature baby.
Money raised from the appeal will significantly improve the overall experience of a preterm infant, who typically requires multiple X-rays to be taken during their admission.
Philip Amess, a consultant at the TMBU, explains more…
The new digital X-ray machine we would love to have on the TMBU has numerous advantages and benefits. One of which is allowing immediate processing of the X-ray image at the cot side. This means the quality of the X-ray may be assured and repeat images to check line positions can be taken without delay, without the need to remove and replace an X-ray plate each time. Ultimately, the process would be much more efficient, and (most importantly) give us images which are of higher quality, and obtained at lower radiation doses for the child. This is, and always will be, our aim on TMBU - to provide the very best patient care on the unit."
How can you get involved?
It is estimated that one in nine babies born in the UK will spend time on a neonatal unit, so many families experience what it is like to have a poorly new born baby, and the anxiety and worry this can bring. Every day, the amazing neonatal team at the TMBU hold in their hands the most precious and fragile little lives. With the help of our supporters, we can continue to ensure the very best possible standard of care for many years to come.
