We are the dedicated charity for Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals. We aim to enhance our hospitals environment by providing supplementary equipment or additional services that are above and beyond what the NHS can provide.
The Ashford and St. Peter’s Charitable Fund comprises several individual funds, each designated to a medical theme, such as cancer, neonatal care or haematology, or to a specific ward, campaign project or hospital location.
The overall ASPH Charity is governed by the Charitable Funds Committee and the ASPH Trust Executive. The charity administers the funds (under the direction of the Charitable Fund Committee) and ensures that public donations go to where the donor intended. Charitable funds are not used to replace existing services and equipment that should be provided by the NHS.
Chief Executive's Statement
Our vision, “to provide an outstanding experience and best outcome for our patients”, is how we want every patient and relative visiting our hospitals to feel. It’s about the care and treatment being given, together with the environment in which it is delivered.
Our charitable funds are used to help us achieve this by providing additional equipment, and enhanced surroundings that are above and beyond what the NHS can currently provide.
On rare occasions charitable funds can also be used towards research and to trial new procedures. Improved facilities to receive chemotherapy, overnight accommodation in the neonatal unit, an additional mammography scanner to enable faster diagnosis and restful green courtyards are just a few examples.
Your donations really do make a massive difference, as do the considerable number of hours our fundraisers put in to raise these valuable funds.
May I take this opportunity to say a personal thank you for helping us to achieve our vision.
Happy Birthday NHS!
