What is the Charity Fund? 

The Ayrshire and Arran Health Board Charity Fund (also known as the endowment funds) is a registered charity which raises funds for the benefit of patients in the local area to provide extra facilities and comforts which are not available from government funding. It also provides additional support to Ayrshire and Arran healthcare staff including advanced training and medical research.  

Some of the things the funds have bought recently are listed below: 

  • A 'magic carpet' and 'magic mirror' - interactive toys to enhance sensory experiences for children in our Paediatric unit.
  • The refurbishment of relatives' rooms.
  • A diagnostic ultrasound machine for MSK Physiotherapy and Podiatry service.
  • Air powered platforms to make medical imaging procedures more comfortable for patients.
  • Specialised chairs for wards for the elderly.
