Child first, patient secondDonate Now
Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity believes that nothing should get in the way of being a child. We exist to transform the lives of children and young people in hospital and healthcare so they can be a child first and a patient second.
We support and complement the work of Edinburgh's Royal Hospital for Sick Children (The Sick Kids) as well as other children’s healthcare settings across Scotland.
