It was a gift left in a Will that helped to fund University Hospital Southampton in the early 20th century. And it’s the gifts that our supporters kindly leave us in their Wills today that have helped us go the extra mile for our patients.
Around one third of our donations come from gifts in Wills. Without this type of support, we simply wouldn’t be able to offer the standard of care our patients deserve.
Paul Grundy, Chief Medical Officer
In just the past few years, gifts in Wills have helped us to:
Supply our children’s ward with play and learning activities.
Refurbish the new intensive care unit.
Make our elderly care wards more dementia-friendly.
Build a new gym for our rehabilitation patients.
Fund research into amblyopia (lazy eye) in children.
Whether it’s a piece of new equipment, a pioneering new research project, or a little something extra to enhance our patients’ hospital experience, your legacy gift will go a long way in keeping this hospital world class.
