About MCH Charity
What we do
Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity is a registered charity which supports the excellent work of Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We do this by providing funding for state-of-the-art equipment, new facilities and all the added extras that make people's experience at our hospitals and in our community services the best it can be.
We also provide funding for specialist training for Trust staff, which enhances their skills and helps them to provide even better care to their patients. We also provide grants which help to support and improve staff wellbeing.
We couldn't do any of this without the ongoing support, hard work and generosity of our local communities who donate to, and fundraise for, the charity.
We are members of the Fundraising Regulator and have signed up to the Fundraising Promise
We are also members of NHS Charities Together
We have created a new strategy to help guide the charity over the next three years. To read the strategy click here.
In November 2022 we were announced recipients of a Special Recognition Award in the category of Contribution to the Community at South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.
We provided over £100,000 for equipment to improve patient care during the year
This is In addition to the above and includes equipment for Emergency Care, Paediatrics and Medical Imaging. We exist because we believe that everyone who visits Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust should have an experience that exceeds their expectations.

Supporting the NHS trust
We fund items which are 'over and above' basic NHS provision. This means we can add value to the care and experience of patients and their loved ones by enhancing the environment, funding state-of-the-art equipment and by providing all the added extras which make a difference every day.
Training staff & enhancing skills
We also fund specialised training for our staff, which enhances their skills and helps them to provide even better care to their patients. We couldn’t do any of this without the ongoing support, hard work and generosity of our local communities who donate to, and fundraise for, the charity.
We need your help & support
You can support any area of our hospitals (Leighton Hospital in Crewe, Victoria Infirmary in Northwich, or Elmshurst Intermediate Care Centre in Winsford) or our community based services by making a donation, fundraising for the charity, or by leaving a gift in your Will.
Your support makes a real difference
Every year we spend thousands of pounds helping to make our services the best they can be for patients and staff. The charity exists to enhance and improve the care and experience of patients, so everything we pay for is ‘over and above’ what the NHS provides as standard.
