Each of our member charities will already work in partnership with other parts of the health and social care service in the communities they support. Some of the funding raised through the appeal is going towards helping those partnerships outside hospitals, such as hospices, community healthcare, GP surgeries and social care. How that funding is used and distributed will be based on the specific needs in each community, but the initial focus is likely to be on making sure patients leaving hospital have access to the care they need to recover.
