Charity: King George & Queen's Hospitals Charity
King George & Queen’s Hospitals Charity is a local NHS Charity supporting two local hospitals: King George Hospital in Ilford and Queen’s Hospital in Romford. Our focus is clear – we work alongside and in support of Barking, Havering & Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust and the Trust’s staff and clinical teams to make our hospitals even better for our patients and their families. Our charity does not subsidise the core responsibilities of the NHS but we enhance the essential services provided by them to make the hospital journey the best it can be for everyone. Our charitable donations fall into four categories: • Medical equipment • Information & technology • Comfort & the environment • Research & training We actively create events, challenges and campaigns to encourage our community to help us raise funds, and we are the custodians of all voluntary donations and charity investments. We take pride in ensuring our supporters’ donations will be wisely spent and restricted to a specific area if requested. Our role is to listen to the concerns, ideas and innovations of both our patients and staff and to help turn their great ideas into reality - making the hospital experience better for all.
