Northamptonshire Health Charity supports both Northampton General Hospital and Northamptonshire Healthcare Foundation Trust (NHFT).  Funds raised and donated to the charity are used to support whichever ward or department area chosen by the donor.  The charity helps to provide equipment and care above and beyond that provided by the NHS.

Thanks to the generosity and support of the local community, we have made a huge difference to the experience of thousands of patients.

Our Mission

To raise funds to support Northampton General Hospital and NHFT in their objective of providing excellent healthcare at the heart of the community and being the first choice hospital for the local population by:-

  • funding equipment that makes a real difference to patient care.
  • helping to improve the environment for patients and staff.
  • supporting staff development & training to further knowledge and expertise.

Where does the money go?

When money is donated to Northamptonshire Health Charity, donors can either specify the ward or department they would like their donation to go towards, or put the money into one of the general funds. Money in these funds is used for equipment or projects that have been identified as a priority and to support those areas which may not have a fund of their own. 

Northamptonshire Health Charity supports all areas across both NHS Trusts and aims to work closely with supporters to ensure that funds raised go directly to the area specified by them.  

If your patients or service users would like to thank you for your treatment and care they can make a donation to your team’s charitable fund.  We can guarantee that all funds go directly to the area specified.

Background

Northamptonshire Health Charity (previously known as Northampton General Hospital Charitable Fund & Northamptonshire Health Charitable Fund) was established in 1995 to help deliver the highest standards of care to the patients and families who use Northampton General Hospital or local community healthcare.  The charity supports staff to improve, extend and innovate their work with the latest technology and training, enabling them to enhance the care provided to patients.

Whilst the NHS receives government funding for healthcare, there is always more that can be done to improve services. With the help of our supporters this can be achieved.

It is through the generosity of patients, visitors, local companies, community groups and individuals that we are able to support the development of facilities and services.
