How is the money spent?

The Fund supports and enhances the work of the NHS by providing the 'extras' which are not automatically funded by the NHS. These can be items such as specialist equipment, activities for patients and service users, comforts for staff, furniture and artwork for visitors to enjoy. These all improve and sometimes directly enhance the environment for patients, visitors, volunteers and staff. The Fund can also support some staff education and training.
