Covid 19 Funds – have your say…

Since the start of the pandemic, thanks to the generosity of our local community and funding from the NHS Charities Together Covid 19 Appeal, we have been able to support our staff and patients in a variety of ways.
There remains £80k of funds which are unallocated and as pressure mounts in our hospitals through the second wave of the pandemic we want to ensure that these funds have the greatest impact.
We want to hear from YOU. Answer these two questions:
“What one thing could RCHT Charity do to help PATIENTS at this time?”
“What one thing could RCHT Charity do to help STAFF at this time?”

Please send us your ideas.
