How are Charity funds used?

We would not be able to continue supporting the Trust without the kind generosity of our supporters.

They have helped us to provide:
  • Additional patient comforts – better quality comfortable furniture, additional furniture such as parental beds on the Children’s Ward and special support cushions used during radiation therapy
  • More advanced, specialist pieces of equipment, not generally provided by the NHS for example a linear accelerator for the advanced treatment of cancer patients
  • Items that improve the environment/ambience and patient experience
  • Opportunities to further medical knowledge through research
  • Children’s books and toys
  • TVs, DVDs and other patient entertainment media
