Plymouth Hospitals Charity believes passionately in the power of partnerships. We are proud to be a strategic partner of University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust and understand that by working closely with our partners in the NHS, NHS charities and local organisations we can significantly enhance support for patients and NHS staff across Devon.
We are proud to be the lead charity for Devon for the NHS Charities Together (NHS CT) Community Partnership Grants Programme launched in September 2020.
NHS Charities Together is the national, independent NHS charity caring for the NHS, and represents all NHS charities associated with hospitals, mental health, ambulance and community health services across the UK.
In March 2020 NHS Charities Together launched a Covid-19 Appeal and NHS CT became the focal point for the outpouring of public support. The appeal raised £150 million to support patients, hospital staff, and volunteers at the frontline of the coronavirus crisis.
The Community Partnership Grant Programme is funded through the appeal and was launched in recognition of the vital work that voluntary and community groups do to support the NHS. These groups, such as hospices, care homes and charities, have helped the NHS by supporting the health of communities affected by Covid-19. This funding seeks to support effective partnerships between the NHS and its community partners.
Working closely with our local NHS Charity partners, we identified eight local Delivery Partners and in July 2021 we were informed that our application to NHS CT had been successful. Plymouth Hospitals Charity was awarded £534,639 to support projects that provide vital help to patients, staff and volunteers on the frontline at the most critical of times.
PHC is University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust NHS charity. We work closely with the other NHS Charities in Devon that support each of the Trusts.
