Fundraising and Donating

As an employer of over 4,000 people the Trust is also one of the biggest employers in the area and sees nearly a million patients each year. Charitable Funds supports the work of the hospital and its staff.

By raising additional money we can improve the healthcare and experience delivered to our patients. The money raised and donated via Charitable Funds does not replace money provided to our hospitals from the government.

Charitable Funds are needed instead to pay for things that aren’t covered by the NHS, e.g., enhance patient environment/add value to service.

What is the money spent on?

You can specify if you’d like your money to be spent more generally across our hospitals or specifically to a department or ward.
