The Swan Fund

The Swan Fund was set up by Jules Lewis, Swan End of Life Care (EoLC) Facilitator/Lead Nurse at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, which runs the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH) and Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) in Telford.

Jules launched the Swan Fund in July 2015 with a £500 donation collected at the funeral of her own father, Harold, who died at RSH. The fund has now grown to over £60,000 and is used to fund SWAN Model of Care resources for the care and support we offer to our patients & the people important to them in those last hours /days of life and to support staff to deliver good and excellent end of life care.

The Swan Fund also funds a Wedding Box which allows staff to plan a hospital wedding for a patient, decorate their room and toast the bride and groom – there have been two weddings in 2021. In addition the Swan Fund is used to purchase Swan bags and folders which are gifted to the people important to the patient, providing supporting information and essential items at the hardest of times.
