How to make a donation…

Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust helps more than 350,000 patients each year. It is a busy district general hospital, providing a wide range of acute services and specializing in cancer care.

Contributions from the local community have a tremendously positive effect, helping to provide an even better service to patients. Without the local community the hospital wouldn’t be where it stands today.

The Department of Fundraising coordinates all fundraising for the hospital, working closely with Southend Hospital Charitable Foundation on large fundraising appeals and administering Southend Hospital Charity, which looks after the funds for wards and departments.  If you would like your money to go to a specific cause, just specify when you donate.


You can donate online via our Just Giving page by simply clicking HERE.  If you would like your donation to go towards a special appeal, department or event just mention it in the comment box. Alternatively, you may wish to support our General Purpose fund which is used in areas of the hospital where it is most needed.

You can also donate to the Keyhole Cancer appeal
