How Charity Funds Are Used

Every day patients across our hospitals feel the benefit of the generosity of people like you; from funding state-of-the-art medical equipment and the latest research, to making our hospital a more comfortable and attractive place for patients of all ages.

SaTH relies on the kind generosity of our supporters.

They have helped us to provide:

  • Additional patient comforts – better quality, more comfortable furniture, additional furniture such as parental beds on the Children’s Ward and special support cushions used during radiation therapy
  • Specialist pieces of equipment, to reduce waiting times for our patients sometimes not generally provided by the NHS, for example a High Resolution Screen to view radiology images in the Emergency Department and furniture for our Swan Rooms.
  • Items that improve the environment/ambience and patient experience
  • Opportunities to further medical knowledge through research
  • Reminiscence materials for patients with dementia
  • Children’s books and toys
  • TVs, DVDs and other patient entertainment media
  • Specialist training not funded by the NHS for our Nurses and clinicians

For further information on how your support can help us to enhance patient care please check our latest news stories to see how donations have made a difference to patients, their families and visitors.

Our donors and volunteers make a real difference to the SaTH Trust. It’s your generosity that enhances and improves the experiences of patients and their families, as well as our amazing staff, across our two hospitals and within the communities we serve.

It’s our ambition to make the biggest difference through our approach of providing the kindest care, so we promise to make sure we look after our supporters in the best way we can.
