How to thank

We are unable to accept gifts.  Our staff are not allowed to accept money, and may only accept fruit, chocolates or refreshments.

Some patients or relatives may wish to express their appreciation by making a donation to Burton Hospitals Charity or the League of Friends.  These funds are used to purchase equipment and other items for patients and staff, which would not otherwise be available from NHS funding.  If you are a tax payer you can increase the value of your donation by completing a Gift Aid form. 

If you would prefer to give a gift that is restricted to a specific ward or area please email 

Gifts in kind are always very welcome but all items used in the hospital have to conform to strict health and safety standards.

Donations of cash or cheques may be given through the Hospital Treasury / General Office at Robert Bewick House which is open from 9am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday.

Donation by Debit or Credit Cards may be given via the links with on our website.

Please do not send cash by post.

If you wish to send or present a cheque, please make it payable to Burton Hospitals Charity and send it to Burton Hospitals Charity, The House, Queen’s Hospital Belvedere Road, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire DE13 0RB.  We will gladly send you an acknowledgement and thank you letter. 

Please indicate if the donation is to be used for the benefit of the hospital or an individual Ward or Department. Providing you have paid enough tax we would always encourage you to ‘gift aid’ your donation, adding 25% on top of the gift at no extra cost to you.

If you wish to compliment a specific member of staff or team please see our GEM staff recognition system.
