The RD&E provides safe, compassionate and high quality integrated health and care services in Exeter and across East and Mid-Devon to around 450,000 people. One of the first NHS Foundation Trusts nationally, we are directly accountable to and work hand-in-hand with local people and communities.
Our mission is to make the exceptional possible - we fundraise over and above what the NHS is able to provide to make a real difference to our patients, their families and our amazing staff that treat them.
Our objectives are:
• Providing special high-tech equipment for saving lives
• Providing extra support for patients and carers in the hospital and out in the community to enhance well-being
• Additional training opportunities for staff development to enhance patient services and staff welfare
• Funding ground-breaking research and innovation within the hospital that can have a significant impact on patient care
We support causes across the entire Trust in hospitals and our community services and maintain around 120 separate funds each containing money which has been given for a particular ward, department or service. Often it’s simply about enhancing the wards, the facilities and the little touches which help people get better, faster when they come to our great hospital.
