Healthcare

Royal College of Surgeons of England

Register Charity No. 212808

With 4.2 million surgical operations carried out every year in England alone, our aim to maintain and advance surgical standards in patient care has never been so important. Some operations are minor, while others are life-saving or will dramatically enhance the quality of life. In every case, the patient places their trust in the hands of the surgeon.

Independent of the NHS, the College relies heavily on charitable support to fund the development of these activities. Legacies and donations from grant-giving trusts, companies and individuals provide an essential source of income, and allow us to fund important new projects and initiatives.

The College continues to sustain and improve surgical standards throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our training, education and research programmes are intended to advance the knowledge and skills of surgeons so that the treatment received by patients is of the highest possible standard.

Hospice Aid UK

Hospice Aid is a unique UK based charity delivering much needed grants to UK hospices.

Hospice AID UK is committed to support all hospices who apply to us with every penny spent staying in the UK. We give support where and when it's needed.

There is no charge for hospice care and they rely heavily on public funding. We have provided support in all types of ways, whether to help buy specialist equipment, cover hospice running costs, supply emergency funding or in other areas that can be difficult to get funding for.

We are driven by our determination to increase awareness of how reliant hospices are for funding, but we couldn't do this without public support.

A donation, however large or small, would mean we could help a larger number of hospices and reach more of the people that need it. Hospice Aid UK delivers the money where it is needed, when it is needed.

The National Brain Appeal

The National Brain Appeal raises funds for The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and the Institute of Neurology (jointly known as Queen Square).

The National Hospital is one of the world’s leading centres for the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with a wide range of neurological and neuromuscular conditions including multiple sclerosis (MS), brain cancer, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, Prion disease, and brain injury.

One in six people in the UK are affected by a neurological condition. That’s more than the number of people living with cancer, coronary heart disease and diabetes combined. In spite of this there has been a continuing lack of national prioritisation to deliver better outcomes for those affected. Our aim is to improve the outcome and quality of life for everyone with a neurological disorder by funding pioneering research, providing access to the latest technology for expert diagnosis and training tomorrow’s leading clinicians. Your help can make this possible.
