It depends! If you donate without specifying what area of the hospital you’d like to support, this goes into our ‘general fund’, which is open for anyone from the Trust to apply for funding. Alternatively if you donate to a particular Appeal or area of the hospital, it will be safely earmarked for that. We have very robust criteria for our grants to be approved, so you can be sure that your money will help where it is needed the most.
As much as we would like to fund things like this - in reality they’re often not practical or asked for by the staff! We work really closely with NUH Trust to make sure your donations are used in the best possible way, to make sure your money will make the most difference to patient care. If you’d like to donate to a particular cause or piece of equipment, visit our Appeals page to see what is needed right now.
We did! Captain Sir Tom Moore was an inspiration, and he fundraised for NHS Charities Together, which we are a member of. We work really closely with this organisation and apply for grants from Captain Tom’s fundraised money. To date, we’ve received around £200,000 and we are applying for more.

If you’ve been looked after by our team of incredible staff in Nottingham’s hospitals, we understand that you might want to say thank you to those individuals specifically. While we’re not able to fund pay or bonuses for staff, we do work closely with the Trust to provide wellbeing support and fund projects which will directly impact our staff.
