About the Trust’s charity

Welcome to United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust Charitable Funds (Registered Charity No. 1058065). Thank you for the ongoing generosity of our staff, patients and their friends in supporting the charity.

  1. The improvement of the patient environment
  2. Keeping staff up to date with all the latest medical advances and training courses
  3. Helping to buy state of the art clinical equipment for the treatment of patients
  4. Medical research
