Charitable Funds

Our charitable funds (UK registered charity: 1165788) make a huge difference to the experience of service users who are cared for in our hospital sites and community services across the North East and Cumbria. Charitable donations can provide the support for the extra things that would not be possible from the funding we receive from central government alone.
