What your money funds

Your donations really do make a difference. Donations allow us to fast-track the purchase of innovative healthcare equipment, provide specialist training and support patients with the best healthcare at home, in the community and in our hospitals.

We know that visiting a hospital for treatment can be a daunting task and we aim to give every patient the best experience possible. Your donations enable us to provide our teams with training in the latest healthcare techniques, equipment for wards such as our Children’s Ward and even support initiatives for patient wellbeing such as Arts in Health and Wellbeing.
