Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity has an independent board of voluntary trustees who meet quarterly to review the charity’s business and decide which projects the charity will support.
It is the Trustees who have the final say on charitable expenditure – not the hospital, the NHS or the Government. Thus you can be certain that your donation will go to provide services, equipment and research over and above NHS funding.
We promise that not a penny of your donation will go to replace core NHS funding.
