Warwick Hospital A&E Appeal.


Chris led a much-needed fundraising drive to provide necessary improvements to Warwick Hospital A&E, which treats over 60,000 patients per year.

A £900,000 public appeal launched to supplement £820,000 received from the government’s regional Accident and Emergency modernisation fund. The appeal total passed the £1m mark and enabled the local A&E unit to be built.

"I have known Chris Swan for over 15 years. I worked for Chris as a member of his senior management team for over 5 years: I have held a position as a Trustee on a charity he initiated to support talented young emerging musicians; I was part of a team led by Chris who raised over £1 million to build a new A&E facility at Warwick Hospital and I consider Chris to be a personal friend. Over the period that I have known Chris he has acted as a mentor and helped me to develop my career.

Chris is a very honest, trustworthy individual with high morals and principles. Chris is very supportive, open and genuine. He operates at the highest of standards and always looks for and sees the best in people." - Lisa Dunn - Director, NHS Trust
