How you can help us!
Each year, we have a capital bids programme where we prioritise the pieces of medical equipment to be purchased or replaced. Inevitably the NHS budget can only stretch so far, so those items that almost made the cut will have to wait for the next year.
Would you like to help us get these items sooner?
Working with teams from across the hospitals, we’ve created a list of some of the items that we have been unable to purchase, which we have shared on our website. It is here that you will be able to see which of the items have been purchased already or partially funded, and you will be able to make a contribution, however big or small, or even purchase an item outright if you wish!
One of the benefits of doing this means that under charity legislation these items do not incur VAT if bought by charitable funds.
