About us

The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Charity

As from the 1st April 2016, the hospitals within the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are directly supported by one single charity:

Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Charity (registered charity number 1057213)

The charity administers the many donations made to more than 700 separate charitable funds based at Newcastle’s hospitals (previously administered by both the Newcastle Healthcare Charity and The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Charity).

Where does the money go?

Healthcare services are funded by the NHS from central government taxes and we try to provide the highest level of service to our patients from the government funding we receive. However, there are always ways in which the quality of care provided by the Newcastle Hospitals can be enhanced even further.

Put simply, our goal is to fund those 'extras' which we cannot expect to be provided by the NHS alone.


Donations to our Charity mean that we can keep pace with continual developments in medical equipment and treatment and allow us to go the extra mile and achieve things more quickly than would otherwise have been possible.

Your donations help to provide more sophisticated equipment, additional patient comforts, improvements to the hospital environment, specialist staff training and funding of pioneering research projects to develop new treatments and technologies.  

During 2016/17, thanks to donations made to Newcastle Hospitals NHS Charity, the Trust received an additional £2.69 million to spend:

  • £564,000 for new and innovative equipment
  • £1.34 million for patient comforts and amenities
  • £126,000 for specialized staff training and education
  • £661,000 for locally based medical research
