Previous Projects

Smile4Wessex appeals (and those previously run under the Smile4Rich campaign) have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds to provide state-of-the-art equipment and facilities at the Wessex Neurological Centre.

Please click on the project headings below for the full story of each project.

3D Endoscopic Neurosurgery

The charity's latest appeal success brings 3D Endoscopic Neurosurgery to the Wessex Neurological Centre, making possilbe procedures that simply could not be conducted with 2D technology.

The Smile4Wessex Children's Neuro Centre

The charity has part-funded the development of a world-class Children’s Neurosciences Centre to replace the previous Children’s Neurosurgery Ward.

ISIS IOM Intra-Operative Nerve Monitoring System

In a collaboration with the Trigeminal Neuralgia Support Group, Smile4Wessex has funded the provision of sophisticated nerve monitoring equipment which will further enhance the safety of complex neurosurgery.

Revolutionary Microscope Sheds New Light on Neurosurgery

In 2011 the Wessex Neurological Centre became the first centre in the UK to install a new generation of neurosurgical operating microscope, equipped with revolutionary fluorescence imaging technology.

Paediatric Video-Telemetry (PVT) Suite

Epilepsy has a dramatic impact on those it affects, and none more so than children. In severe cases a child may suffer 30, 40 or even 50 seizures each day, daunting for an adult let alone a child.

The Smile4Rich Ambulance Appeal

There was a time when recovering patients awaiting transfer from the WNC back to their ‘home’ hospital elsewhere in the region did just that - wait - due simply to the lack of an appropriate vehicle.

Auto-Tilt Sigma Physiotherapy Chair

Physiotherapy is a crucial part of the rehabilitation process, and the ability to provide this to patients who would otherwise endure long periods of immobility is an important aid to their recovery.
