About the charity

Portsmouth Hospitals Charity raises funds to make a positive difference for patients, their families and the staff who support their care. We fundraise to help improve facilities, purchase equipment and support research and innovation.

We are the charity partner of Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust, and we work to support all wards and departments across Portsmouth Hospitals.

Any donation, no matter how large or small helps us to enhance patient care, and support staff wellbeing. Without support, we can't continue to provide those extras which can make such a difference to our patients' care and treatment.
