I’m responsible for raising money from charitable trusts and foundations. I also help to manage our projects and appeals from across the hospital.

The best thing about working for SHC is meeting all the inspirational staff here at UHS. Knowing that I’m helping them and patients is the best bit of my job. No one likes coming to hospital but together we can make it that little bit better.
