King Edward VII’s Hospital is a registered Charity. Any surplus we make is reinvested into cutting-edge facilities and equipment, keeping us at the forefront of medical care in the UK and helping support our award winning charitable work with veterans of the Armed Forces.
King Edward VII’s Hospital is special due to its charitable status. It was founded in 1899 with the express purpose of treating those injured in the Second Boer War. That care for servicemen and women and for veterans continues to this day.
As a charity King Edward VII’s Hospital is reliant on the generosity of supporters. Your support is vital in not only supporting veterans, but also enabling the Hospital to build new facilities and to purchase leading medical equipment, ensuring we maintain our extremely high levels of patient treatment and care.
Our charitable work focuses on helping support those men and women who have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, and also their spouses and partners. This can take the form of a significant discount on our fees or a means tested grant from the Sister Agnes Benevolent Fund (which may be for the full cost of treatment).
In 2016 we opened the Centre For Veterans’ Health.
