Around 500 members of staff take part every month in the Southampton Hospital Charity lottery for only £1 a week. While 50% of this cost is given out in prize money, the remaining money is available for bids annually from Southampton Hospital Charity to fund those smaller projects that will benefit patients.

  • The project is for the benefit of NHS patients at UHS.
  • The project must be to enhance an existing UHS service.
