Who We Are

Welcome to your local hospital charity at the heart of University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust, supporting the best health care for all our patients and welfare for our staff.

On 1 July 2018, the NHS Trust brought together five hospitals in Derby, Burton, Lichfield and Tamworth to provide the highest quality care to patients across southern Derbyshire and south east Staffordshire. The trust aims to deliver outstanding care for local people as we bring together the expertise of our 12,000 staff across our five hospital sites.

As part of this merge, the two Trust charities were also merged to create the now Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity.

The charity aims to help make patients’ lives better and your amazing donations and legacies enable the charity to help provide the extras that cannot be provided from NHS statutory funding, but make a huge difference to our patients and staff.

We are committed to supporting our fundraisers and using your donations to best benefit the staff and patients working and being cared for in our hospital.

Each year we provide funds that improve:

  • Patient welfare
  • Equipment
  • Research
  • Staff training

In supporting Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity, you have the opportunity to support a ward or department close to your heart as we have over 100 separate funds for you to choose from.

Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity is a registered charity. Charity number 1061812
