Many people choose to leave a legacy which can help other patients in the future or relatives may celebrate the life of a loved one by supporting a service which mattered to them.

These donations, big or small, can make a huge difference by enabling us to invest in new technologies, new research and improved facilities for patients.
 
At Berwick and Wansbeck general hospitals, legacies have provided funding to refurbish accommodation on the palliative care ward to provide a calming rest room and patio garden for relatives of patients who are coming to the end of their life.
 
If you would like to contact someone to discuss how you can help in this way, please contact Brenda Longstaff or Katie Dawson on 0191 2031354.

A way to remember

Legacies have helped to fund many projects, such as the Wansbeck Oasis which is a calm and peaceful area for relatives of patients near the end of their life.
