Our hospitals need their communities just as our communities need their hospitals


Raise is the charity dedicated to supporting patient care across Watford General, Hemel Hempstead and St Albans City hospitals. We’ve been here doing this since 1995.

Every patient deserves the highest quality care and donations to Raise help fund the latest technology, environmental enhancements, staff development and extra comforts that make such a difference to patients, day after day, above and beyond what the NHS can afford alone.

Supporters and donors like you can help ensure that the care provided is of the highest level and that patients and their families will benefit for years to come.

There are many ways that you can support your hospital charity, including making a card donation, giving in memory of a loved one, volunteering your support, or organising a fundraising activity. Just click or tap on any of these buttons …
