    COUNTY DURHAM AND DARLINGTON NHS FOUNDATION TRUST CHARITY 

    The Charity, with the help of invaluable contributions from supporters of our hospitalsand community services, provides an opportunity to undertake activities and enhance patient care that might otherwise not be possible. This includes the purchase of medical equipment, improvements to patient amenities and patient and staff education, above and beyond what is normally provided by the NHS.
    Analysis by Giving is Great

    Positives:

    • The charity has received modest backing from several prominent grant makers recently

    Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

    • This charity uses a corporate trustee

    Financial issues to consider:

    • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
    • Spending has fallen significantly over the last 5 years relative to the previous period
    • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
    Established: 28 years
