Abstract:

This article looks at the legal issues affecting the making of charitable grants to NHS bodies, and includes an analysis of the types of grants made and examples of well-known charities engaged in such activities. Included is a history of the charitable status of hospitals, leading up to the implications of the new Charities Act 2006. There then follows an in-depth commentary on the customary form of NHS-funding, aimed at supplementing public provision, and an explanation of the Charity Commission's approach to such activities. The article goes on to summarise the Charity Commission's recent guidance for such grant-makers, and the issues that trustees ought to consider when providing such funding.
