Our Small Projects Programme runs alongside our public Appeals for the purchase of smaller items of equipment in different clinical areas. This funding typically ranges from £5,000 – £25,000.  Recent projects have included providing specialist equipment for respiratory medicine, audiology, endoscopy, pathology, haematology, ophthalmology, rheumatology, anaesthetics and specialist community nurse teams.
