Supporting incredible NHS staff and exceptional healthcare

Improving staff welfare and patient experience across Guy’s, St Thomas’, and Evelina London hospitals and community sites

We help Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust to provide exceptional healthcare, through supporting a world-class environment for patients and staff at our hospitals and community sites.

We do this through a mix of philanthropic support, managing all donations and funding the costs related to fundraising and administration to ensure 100% of donated funds go towards helping patients and staff. Our work with the Trust is overseen by our Trust Engagement Committee.

Supporting staff and patients

Funding from generous donations is available exclusively to help staff at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust drive improvements beyond what the NHS can support. Due to the support of the public, we have been able to deliver record levels of funding to support staff at the Trust during this period.

Currently, we provide support through two funds: Evelina Children’s Fund and Special Purpose Funds.

Evelina Children’s Fund

Using donations for the hospital and children’s services, we help provide the best possible care for young patients and their families.

Special Purpose Funds

Special Purpose Funds are created when funds are donated to us for a specific purpose. These could be funds donated to honour the care of a loved one on a ward, or to support a particular type of research. Staff can use these funds to drive improvements.

Other funds

Our Charitable Fund and Cancer Fund are currently paused due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. We expect to review these in 2021, along with our Individual Staff Award scheme, which is currently closed and will be reviewed later in 2021.

Thank you to everyone at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust who is working tirelessly to support patients, families, friends and colleagues. Read more about our work with Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
