A gift in your will

Legacy leaflet picture.pngWe understand that family and friends come first but leaving a gift in your will is a wonderful way to make your support for the York Teaching Hospital Charity live on.

Choosing to make a will is the only way to ensure your loved ones are provided for in the way that you would like after you die. If you do not have a will, loved ones may have to pay Inheritance Tax which is currently 40%. Keeping your will up to date will ensure peace of mind as circumstances often change. A will also ensures that you have control over aspects such as who looks after your children should anything happen to you.

By leaving a gift in your will to York Teaching Hospital Charity you can make a real difference to patients in our hospitals by ensuring the very best quality of care is provided at all times.

We will always support the wishes of our donors to ensure their gifts are spent according to their choice whether this is to go to a specific appeal, department or Ward.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.


These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
