Charity Matters spring 2021 newsletter

This week marks one year since staff at University Hospital Southampton treated their first coronavirus patient.

Since then all our lives have changed in ways that we could never have imagined.

But one thing hasn’t changed. I still witness the kindness and generosity of our supporters on a daily basis. From maternity services through to the wards that care for our older people, YOU are the transforming care for thousands of people across our hospitals.

Thank you for making a difference with us.
