At Imperial Health Charity, we support the five London hospitals of the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust - Charing Cross, Hammersmith, Queen Charlotte's & Chelsea, St Mary's and the Western Eye. We fund major redevelopments, equipment and medical research, helping our hospitals do more to provide the best possible care for patients and their families.
But right now we're thinking about the people who need us most - our dedicated hospital staff and our vulnerable patients.
The spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) is affecting all of our lives, and while we make sense of this new reality, our NHS is facing extreme pressure.
At this difficult time for us all, we're determined to do everything we can to support the remarkable hospital staff leading the fight on the front line while also helping vulnerable patients and their families.
That's why we've set up a special relief fund that will help those affected by the virus in their hour of need and support our hospitals to recover.
With your support, we'll provide emergency funds to help hospital staff cope with the extraordinary demands of fighting the virus. At the same time, we'll come to the aid of those vulnerable patients who face sudden and unexpected financial difficulties as a result of their hospital stay.
Please give what you can to help our hospitals fight coronavirus and leave your own personal message of support for our incredible NHS staff, along with your details so we can thank you for your donation.
Anything we raise over and above what might be needed in the current crisis will go towards helping our hospitals continue to give exceptional care in the future.
