When you leave a gift in your Will to us, you’re saying thank you in a way that will carry on making a long-lasting, positive difference long after you’re gone. So please, write a forever thank you in your Will, leaving a gift to Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust Charitable Fund.

We’re part of a national campaign involving over 230 NHS charities, working to increase awareness about the difference that leaving a gift in your Will can make. Whether it’s being there for our wonderful NHS staff, giving patients extra comfort and care, providing cutting-edge equipment, or driving innovative research to benefit future generations.

Why leave a gift in your will

Having a will makes sure what you care about most will be looked after when you’re gone.

Many kind and compassionate supporters choose to leave a gift to Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust in their will. As a thank you for the incredible care they’ve received, and to help provide life-changing care for others in the future.

These generous gifts total almost £500,000 every year, which funds pioneering equipment, research and facilities that the NHS alone cannot provide.

How to leave a gift in your will

Leaving a legacy is usually straightforward. Firstly, choose what you’d like to leave as a legacy. There are three main ways you can choose:

Leave a percentage of your estate

This is also known as a residuary gift. It protects the other parties in your will and won’t be affected by inflation.

Leave a fixed sum

You may want to leave a fixed sum of money. This is known as a pecuniary gift.

Leave a specific gift

This could be an item of jewellery or some shares. Your solicitor can help with how to word this in your will.

Writing or making changes to your will

We always recommend using a solicitor. You may have an existing solicitor, but if not, ask for recommendations from friends and family.
