Who Are We?

Kingston Hospital Charity is the new name for the Kingston Hospital NHS Trust General Charitable Fund (registered charity no. 1056510). We exist to support services provided by Kingston Hospital by fundraising and providing much-needed equipment, services and facilities for patients, their families, carers, staff and visitors.

Kingston Hospital Charity is the main umbrella charity for two other subsidiaries who fundraise for specific ares of work within the hospital, Born too Soon (supporting the neo-natal unit) and the Kingston Cancer Appeal (supporting cancer services).

Kingston Hospital Charity is administered by the Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, who act as the corporate trustee. The committee members meet quarterly to review applications and bids for funding from specific departments within the hospital.

Some of our individual services are generously supported by our partner charities, however, the Kingston Hospital Charity is the only organisation that fundraises for work across the entire Hospital.

Surely The NHS Pays For Everything?

Our core services (such as Accident & Emergency) are of course funded by the taxpayer through the NHS but there are many other areas of work within the hospital which are not covered by statutory funding. Being able to fundraise for these areas of work enables us to improve both the quality of care for our patients and the overall experience for their families, carers and visitors as well as providing additional support and training for care staff.

To achieve this, we rely on supporters old and new who generously give of their time and money.  You can support us in a number of ways, whether individually or on behalf of an organisation.

What have we funded?

Over the years Kingston Hospital Charity has funded many exciting projects, staff placements, building works, refurbishments and equipment.
