Colchester Hospitals Charity

Colchester Hospitals Charity, (CoHoC) aims to make a real and positive difference to patient care in north east Essex by providing the many extras that cannot be supplied by the NHS alone.

Founded 1986

  • Mission statement

    CoHoC helps Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust (the Trust) do more for the patients cared for by its staff. Often, there is a new piece of equipment, more up-to-date technologies, and newer fixtures and fittings that will improve the patients’ environment. It’s these extras – some small, some large – which are above and beyond the scope of the NHS budget that really make a difference to patients and the care that our staff can deliver.
    CoHoC works in these key areas:
     improving the hospital environment for patients and staff
     new equipment
     additional staff training and education.
    Recent examples of items paid for by voluntary donations include:
    • digital heart scanner for the Special Care Baby Unit (£42,323)
    • more comfortable chairs for patients receiving radiotherapy at Essex County Hospital (£2,979)
    • a water cooler for patients attending clinics (£76)
    • materials for the award-winning Tiptree Box’ which is used to help patients with dementia (£240).

    Some of the parts of the hospital that the trust supports:
    Neo Natal or special care babies
    Children's Ward
