HaTS is an independent charity, whose overriding objective is to provide and improve
upon the support and care provided to patients and families of the Haematology and
Transplant Units (HTUs) situated in The Christie Hospital.
Originally known as ALUPAL, the charity, celebrating 30 years of existence in 2016,
helps patients and their families overcome some of the day to day challenges they
encounter when faced with life threatening illnesses and periods of isolation.
Whilst recognising the excellent clinical care and support provided by the HTUs,
HaTS also recognises that sometimes patients and their families need that little
extra support which is often outside of the NHS resources.
The funds raised by HaTS are used to provide financial assistance to those patients
and carers experiencing difficulties. The funds also help to improve the service
provided on the unit, mainly by providing Complementary Therapies to patients and
carers alike. These therapies help with the physical and emotional effects experienced
as a result of a cancer diagnosis.
