Groundbreaking Research

Investing today to help give babies and children across the country the best chance tomorrow.


Many children who are cared for at Bristol Children's Hospital or St Michael's NICU have rare and complex conditions that are life-limiting and, in some cases, life-threatening. At The Grand Appeal, our mission is simple: we want to make sure that the hospital and the NICU stay ahead of the curve, find new ways to prevent, treat and cure illnesses, and ultimately improve the outlook for these children who will require treatment in years to come.

Research in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit

The Paediatric Intensive Care Unit is the beating heart of the children's hospital. It's where the region's most critically ill children and babies are treated, and it's also where some of the country's most exciting discoveries and developments are taking place. We recently welcomed two new PICU research nurses to The Grand Appeal family to help bring about life-saving change for sick babies and children across the country.
