With thanks to our supporters, the York Teaching Hospital Charity is able to make a real difference to the care that people receive when they visit our hospitals.
We will always support the wishes of our donors' to ensure their donations are spent according to their choice, whether this is to go to a specific appeal, department or ward. However, we do also encourage donations to be made to the overall hospital fund so we can support the areas which need it the most.
