NHS donation

Afternoon,

I've looked online in an attempt to find the best way to help fund the NHS. I was hoping to see if I can make an arrangement of sending £10pm. It's not much, obviously, but at least it's something. 
They will certainly be able to live without £10pm from a bloke called Dave!

I just want to help.

I can't actually find a solid donation page.

I remember having a look at 1 which was roughly 2 months ago.

Does anyone have a relevant direct link?

Would anyone be interested in joining me so we can all hopefully try and do it in high numbers?

Thank you

  • Not sure if you are local mate, but I work for the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust. We have a local donation page setup that you can see for yourself below:

    https://www.lewishamandgreenwich.nhs.uk/donate/

    From there, you can see the charities set up by the trust, how the money is spent etc. There really has been some good come out of these donations. There is also the option for regular payment like you have mentioned.

    I'm sure other trusts that may be more local to you also provide this. But I know for sure this trust is under budgeted much like all trusts, and donations are extremely appreciated.

  • Excellent and thanks.

    Will sort mine when I get home from work this eve 👍
  • Gave Queen Elizabeth hospital charity a phone call. Left a voicemail. Will try again on Monday.

    Queen Elizabeth. Forgot it's just round the corner from the Valley
  • Kings college have a fundraiser.

    I can send the link if anyone wants it.


  • The best way is to have a properly tax funded service.
    Hopefully that will come about because of this crisis. 
    Individuals making donations is great but lets the politicians off of some of their responsibilities.

    They can't be bothered.

    So, we should step up.

    Just need to ignore how crappy they are when making decisions like this.

    Some things are just more important.


  • I know a little bit about this because my wife is in a governance role within the NHS.

    Most (if not all) NHS Trusts have charities linked to them, however my understanding is that those funds cannot be used for front line services. So, things it can fund would be staff welfare, patient welfare, patient-led research, very expensive specialist equipment, gardens, gym equipment. It cannot be used to, for example, pay nurses or doctors.

    So @Dave2l anything you give will, of course, be well used but @iainment has a point that to maintain front line services we need the government to properly fund the NHS.

    Yeh of course and it's what we all want and need.

    Not that it matters, but I am certainly not a Tory supporter.

    Like many others, I look down on them.

    Is the NHS easy to fund?

    I don't know, probably not. The budget is probably strangely unnecessarily tight though. It doesn't make sense and it needs clarification.

    If the charity is a mug off the public attempt...then it's just sad and rather depressing

    I'm mostly just greatful to not live in a place like the United States.

    We have free health care. We are lucky but there's obviously room for improvement.

    I'm not saying the charities are bad, just wanted to be clear that under the current regulations no matter how many millions are raised by well-meaning individuals such as yourself, it will not result in any improvement in nursing levels.
