Management of Gifts and Donations during the COVID-19 crisis

The response by the general public and businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic to support our staff at the Northern Care Alliance (Salford, Oldham and Bury and Rochdale), with offers of cash, equipment and other means were greatly appreciated.

The Northern Care Alliance (NCA) has a duty to ensure all gifts and donations received are properly managed; therefore every effort has been made to capture and record all donations received in these very exceptional circumstances.

Cash donations have been directed to the General Office and / or Charitable Funds Departments.

Digital equipment has been managed via our Digital Department, with appropriate checks and addition to Asset Registers where appropriate, prior to being distributed to Critical Care / COVID-19 areas.

All Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) donations have been managed via our NCA Resilience Centre, where donations were checked to ensure compliance with National Guidelines issued by NHS England prior to being utilised across the NCA

Going forward offers of donations will be directed to our Charitable Funds Office, charity@srft.nhs.uk
