Who is eligible?
Grants are made to patients, relatives, and carers. In addition grants are made to hospital departments or staff on behalf of departments.
Additionally there are specific staff funds as a result of donations made by donors for this purpose. Very often requests for small sums can be made to hospital staff at the time that a need is identified.
The Charity’s Secretary, Joyce Larby coordinates requests and provides as quick a response as possible. For larger sums, a decision will be required by the Board which meets quarterly. Decisions can also be made on occasions by the Chairman on behalf of the Board.
