Wales to launch Hospital Gift Card scheme in early 2008
Jon Trigwell, Head of Partnership Funding at Cardiff and Vale NHS Trust has confirmed the support of NHS Trusts in Wales for the Hospital Gift Card to be piloted in the Principality. He states in a letter to Adam Gregory, Managing Director of Gifting Solutions:
"On the 26th July a meeting took place headed by myself and Paul Davies, Director of Finance (Cardiff and Vale NHS Trust) where the presentation of the Hospital Gift Card scheme to the Financial Directors of the NHS Trusts in Wales was discussed in detail including its implementation here in Wales as a pilot prior to its full release in the UK.
I am pleased to confirm that everyone present was extremely supportive of the concept. As a result we would like to take this forward.
I would like to wish you and your team the best of luck for the upcoming pilot and we all hope it is very successful."
NHS Hospital Trusts signing up everyday!
A Register of Interest form, available on this website and sent out to every NHS Hospital Trust, is hitting the mark. Following presentations to the Institute of Fundraising, Hospital Special Interest Group and the Association of NHS Charities, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. There's a steady stream of completed forms being returned to Gifting Solutions.
