Some people like to give something back in recognition of the care they, a friend or relative have received or the role the hospital plays in the community. There are a number of ways that you can support QVH.
The charity funds important initiatives like medical research projects to find new treatments, providing more and better equipment as well as improving patient environments. The donations received make a real difference to the care the hospital can provide to patients who have been devastated by their injuries. You can read more about what QVH Charity has funded in the latest Impact Report.
You can make a donation to the QVH charity, take part in an event, collect sponsorship or leave a legacy in your will. See the QVH Charity website for more details.
