Useful information

In order to give us the best possible chance of securing funds/donations please give us as much notice as possible. We are unlikely to be able to respond to last minute requests.

Please consider the following and remember that the Charity’s mission is to go above and beyond what the NHS can fund.

Do you have approval from your divisional director?

Will the project benefit the public, patients or our staff?

Is the project in line with the Trust's priorities?

If you are requesting funding for training, is it training which is not ordinarily funded through the trust?

Is the cost proportionate to the number of people benefiting?

Have you considered ongoing maintenance costs?

Have you considered infection control, security and health and safety?

If the answer to the above is yes then please proceed

What is the process?
