The inspiration for her character came from the famous female Kitty Wilkinson (1785-1860) who pioneered the public Wash House movement, fighting poverty and disease in nineteenth-century Liverpool.
As a specialist Foundation Trust, Liverpool Women's is dedicated to the health of women and their families. Each year, the Trust now delivers over 8,000 babies, carries out 10,000 gynaecological procedures and cares for 1,000 preterm infants on our Neonatal Unit and places as much importance on their emotional welfare as we do on delivering high standards of clinical care.
Putting patients first is at the heart of everything we do. That's why our job as a registered charity is to raise funds on behalf of the Trust to enhance overall patient experience - the little extra that goes beyond that provided by the NHS and can make a big difference to the comfort and well being of our patients.
Kitty is our new friendly face of Liverpool Women's Charity and from now on she will be the focal point for raising awareness of our work and particularly of the benefits we bring to the patients and families of Liverpool and the surrounding areas.
We couldn't achieve what we do without the help of willing volunteers and charitable donations. Both the Trust's Board members and myself would like to thank all those who have kindly supported us and made donations to date.
This website introduces the work of 'The Kitty' and outlines what we are doing to enhance patient care - and most critically how you can help and get involved.
