What could your donation do?
Your £50 could help fund the purchase of a pioneering robotic microscope for surgeons to remove brain tumours with greater precision and less impact on the patient.
Your £25 could fund our dedicated flat so that the parents of babies that are treated in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) can stay close to the hospital.
Your £10 can help pay for weekly music and creative sessions with patients with dementia to enable them to reconnect with the world around them.
Last year we gave more than £2.4 million to North Bristol NHS trust to fund innovative, nurturing and supportive projects that transform local NHS services
