SWFT Charity is administered and managed by the Corporate Trustee of South Warwickshire Foundation Trust, the directors of which are:
"Our local NHS is amazing. Through our Charity, our community recognises this by funding the little extras for patients and staff to show that we care”
Chief Finance Officer
"The SWFT charity enables patients and members of the local community to give a little something back to the NHS. We are able to pool these contributions together to spend on tangible extras or equipment that really make a difference to patients, visitors and staff."
Dr Charles Ashton
Chief Medical Officer
“The SWFT charity allows us to enhance the quality of care and the environment for both patients and staff. We are able to afford more cutting edge technologies and to make enhancements to our facilities and equipment. This enables us to deliver better, more comfortable care than NHS funding alone can provide. Frontline clinical staff are closely involved in deciding how we spend the charities funds to ensure we make a real difference.”
Chief Nursing Officer
"SWFT Charity is enormously important to us. It allows us to fund extra pieces of equipment or environmental upgrades that really make a difference in enhancing our patient care and treatment. I would encourage anyone from our local community to support this charity for all of our friends and family who all receive local healthcare."
Harkamal Kaur Heran
Cheif Operating Officer
“The SWFT Charity plays an incredibly important role in allowing patients, their families and members of our staff to raise funds to help the Trust provide that extra level of care to everyone who needs to use our services. I am very grateful to everyone who does so and I am honoured to be the Charity’s Chair”
“The charity is led energetically and provides an exceptional service for the Trust and most importantly, its patients. The monies raised enable SWFT to provide equipment and facilities that supplement patient care and improve their experiences in a valuable and meaningful way.”
Sue Whelan Tracy
“SWFT Charity works wonders because when people are unwell, extra caring touches to the hospital environment and equipment made possible because of donations from the public, lift spirits and create a real therapeutic difference.”
