With hospital visiting suspended, or reduced, across Scotland’s hospitals due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Charity has supplied wards in Fife’s hospitals with more than 100 tablet computers to enable patients to video call friends and loved ones, whilst also supplying toiletries, magazines and other items to make their hospital stay more bearable.
In April 2020 an exceptional donation of £500,000 was gifted to NHS Fife. The benefactors, who wish to remain anonymous, specified that the money should be used to address the urgent needs of patients and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Have a look at what we've funded to see some of the projects we have supported with this donation.
The benefactors gave a second generous donation of £250,000 after being pleased with the creativity with which their original gift was used. This donation is being used to further support Fife patients and healthcare staff as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fife Health Charity became a member of NHS Charities Together (NHSCT), which was made famous by fundraising efforts of ‘Captain Tom’ Moore, who raised millions for NHS-affiliated charities across the UK. Through this relationship, the Fife Health Charity has received £447,847 to support patients and staff. Click here for more information about these projects.
