Donations for our staff and patients during Covid-19

In a bid to make it easier for members of the public and local businesses to donate to the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and Pennine Acute Hospitals Trust have set up dedicated drop off points at each of our hospitals to enable donations to be received effectively and distributed across NCA sites and services, which includes Royal Oldham Hospital, Fairfield Hospital, Rochdale Infirmary and Salford Royal.

Cash donations

For individuals and businesses wanting to make a financial contribution, details of how to donate can be found on the charity pages on the websites for Pennine Acute Hospitals and Salford Royal Hospital. Under the current lock down policy, to reduce any potential risk to the public or staff in our cashiers offices, electronic payments or payments by cheque would be recommended. Cash donations are currently being prioritised for Covid19 requirements, however if individuals would prefer to dedicate their cash contribution to a separate appeal or fund this is also possible by contacting the Fundraising team at either charity@pat.nhs.uk for Pennine Acute, or charity@srft.nhs.uk for Salford Royal.

  • make it clear what type of mask / what standard of protection the equipment offers,
  • include the ingredients for items such as hand sanitizer
