Eric Thompson left a £20,000 legacy to Nottingham’s hospitals after being cared for at the City Hospital and Queen’s Medical Centre. Mr Thompson passed away at the age of 82 after suffering from prostate cancer. In his Will, he chose to leave the £20,000 legacy to Nottingham Hospitals Charity. He asked for the legacy to be split between the Urology department at the City Hospital, where he was treated for prostate cancer, and the Eye department at the Queen’s medical Centre, where he was treated for cataracts. Mr Thompson’s nephew Alan Boden, said: “He was very pleased with the care he received at the hospitals.”
