Support UCLH Charity this Christmas

There are lots of ways to get involved in supporting UCLH’s official charity, UCLH Charity this festive season.  By supporting us, you are helping us provide over and above what the NHS can realistically deliver.  From new equipment, environmental uplifts and supporting staff to service innovations and advancing research, your support helps us make a real difference.  This Christmas, together we can do more!

Festive open event, Thursday 5 December 2019, 4.30-6pm, University College Hospital, 235 Euston Road

Join us for mince pies, music, switching on of the Christmas tree lights by a very special guest.   You will also be able to buy charity Christmas cards, reflective hearts and find out how you can support UCLH Charity in 2020.  No need to book just turn up.
