Supporting our NHS Superheroes

Thanks to the incredible outpouring of support to our NHS since the outbreak of the pandemic, we have been able to do so much to support our patients and staff across our hospitals.

As our NHS heroes work to tackle the second wave of COVID-19, we need your continued support to ensure that we can help our patients and staff through what continues to be a really difficult time.

Your support is appreciated, and we are so grateful to everyone who is able to make a donation in support of our work.

If you are interested in making a physical donation of food, drinks, toiletries or clothing then please get in touch with Charlotte Schofield on so that we can ensure that the items you wish to donate will be used in the best way possible.

Across Queen Elizabeth, Heartlands, Good Hope and Solihull Hospitals, our 22,000 members of staff are working tirelessly to care for our patients.

Our staff are staying at work for you, and are asking you to stay at home for them but your donations will help us support them and the NHS in this critical hour of need.

We are using your donations to provide comfort packs for staff working long shifts, especially those who are staying in emergency accommodation away from their own homes and families.

Please donate what you can, and we will use your donations for the following things our staff let us know will help support them:

  • £2 will fund some snacks or treats to help keep the staff going at such a difficult time.

  • £3 will fund hand cream, moisturiser or gel for staff whose hands are chapped through regular washing throughout the day.

  • £5 will fund tea and coffee supplies for frontline staff.

  • £25 will fund an overnight comfort pack of toiletries, washbag and evening meal for those staff staying at hospital overnight.

  • £50 will fund a grocery pack for a doctor or nurse staying in emergency accommodation way from their own home and family so they can be caring for patients around the clock.

  • £300 will fund a commercial quality microwave so staff can have hot meals on their units instead of going elsewhere in the hospital.

  • £400 will fund a tablet that staff can use with patients to receive video calls from their families who are not allowed to visit the hospital.

  • £500 will fund a commercial quality piece of reclining furniture for a staff room so exhausted staff can grab a 30 minute rest between shifts.

Please give whatever you can – every penny really makes a difference.

Thank you all so much for your support.
