I was honoured to take up the role of Chair of the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Charity in June 2019 and I find it hugely rewarding to see the impact the funds that are raised have on our patients and staff. During the recent pandemic, that giving from businesses and individuals across our community has accelerated alongside the legacy provided by Captain Sir Tom Moore for all healthcare staff and locations through NHS Charities Together.
Here, at Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Trust we are all about enhancing the experience of our patients and of our staff- they go hand in glove. My reason therefore for getting involved with the charity is because my own approach to charity fundraising aligns with that of the charity itself- namely to raise income and manage funds for “the benefit of patients and to support staff to deliver improved patient care”. In my view, it’s that simple and I look forward to working with colleagues on our fundraising activity over the next 12 months.
