Our NHS staff already provide outstanding care and treatment, but they are also full of brilliant ideas that help to make their service, ward or hospital even better. Each year our charity supports the NHS in Sheffield by making over £2 million pounds of charitable grants to enhance the care and treatment for local patients.
