Leeds Teaching Hospitals Charitable Foundation is run by an independently appointed Board of Trustees. It is entirely separate from the Leeds Teaching Hospital NHS Trust, the Leeds University School of Medicine and the NHS in general, although it works very closely with all of these organisations.
The Charitable Trustees manage all the charitable funds raised for the benefit of these Leeds hospitals and its sole function is to make grants for the improvement of Trust services. These include purchase of the latest and best equipment for diagnosis and treatment, enhancement of amenities for patients and staff and support for a wide range of medical research and development.
The overall aim of the Charitable Foundation is to assist the NHS Trust by providing additional resources to aid the continual improvement in clinical performance and patient comfort. Click here for more information about the Charitable Foundation.
If we all donated the pennies on our payslips we could raise a huge amount without missing any money at all! We want to say a huge thank you to Leeds City Council who have introduced Pennies from Heaven, with the funds created being split between Leeds Teaching Hospitals Charitable Foundation and the Lord Mayor of Leeds chosen charity.
With this scheme the most you will donate is 99p and of course the least being just a penny.
