Help Our NHS Tayside Heroes

We've teamed up with the Evening Telegraph to support a campaign in aid of Tayside’s frontline healthcare workers and their patients. Will you join us?

Together with our friends at the Tele, we're backing a scheme by NHS Tayside to deliver "essential boxes" to doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals during the outbreak.

These packages will contain a range of toiletries, like shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorants, face and hand creams for staff working gruelling shifts at hospitals and care centres. The boxes will also include newspapers, magazines and puzzle books to be given to patients who currently cannot receive visitors.

Donations of non-perishable food and snacks, as well as teas and coffees to be used in staff rest areas, are also being accepted. It's more important than ever before that we take care of the people who are tirelessly taking care of us throughout this tricky time.

How to Donate

You can drop smaller items off at the reception area of Ninewells Hospital, but for larger donations email donationscovid19.tayside@nhs.net to arrange a time for collection. Cash donations to support essentials boxes can be made via: nhstayside.scot.nhs.uk/GettingInvolved/FundraisingandDonations
