Where your money goes

The money you so generously donate is used to deliver quality care and treatment, prevention work, rehabilitation training, education and health strengthening in the UK and East Africa

Mildmay Mission Hospital restores independence to the majority of our patients thanks to our unique rehabilitation programmes

Running any hospital is hugely expensive. As a charity, Mildmay receives about 80 per cent of our funding from NHS contracts. It costs more than £3.5 million a year to keep Mildmay open (depending on our mix of patients).

Our UK hospital

Mildmay provides palliative care, antiretroviral medication, rehabilitation and a holistic model of medical care for people with complex HIV associated health conditions, including HIV associated brain impairment. We also provide step-down medical care for people who are homeless, and COVID-recovery care.

Your donations help Mildmay secure the future of our UK hospital and maintain first-class services and facilities for our patients.

It costs, on average, about £3.5 million to keep Mildmay open (depending on our mix of patients).

We need to raise upwards of 20% of that amount from charitable donations every year to support our services and facilities.

We are a charity providing specialist services to the NHS, not an NHS or private hospital, so we don't make a profit and ALL of your donations are invested in our services and facilities.

Mildmay is the only UK hospital which provides specialist care for people suffering from HIV-related illnesses and we maintain a pool of expertise and knowledge that is unsurpassed in Europe.

We offer training and education at all levels-from senior government officials to prison wardens, community healthcare workers to drug rehabilitation teams.

Oversea projects

Your donations support our work in East Africa working with thousands of children, young people, women and men with HIV clinical services and education.

Mildmay aims to improve healthcare services in partnership with government, hospital, clinics and projects.

The support given to communities is enormous and is particularly important for those in remote, hard to reach areas.

The work covers support with antenatal care, cervical screening, HIV education and prevention, supports for children, orphans or vulnerable and high risk groups.

Income and expenditure

We strive to make your donations cost-effective. Last year, 100% of every £1 donated to Mildmay went directly to transforming people’s lives
