Above and Beyond Charities

Above & Beyond raises funds to make a real difference to patient care in our hospitals. Our work touches the lives of more than 840,000 patients cared for in Bristol city centre hospitals each year, as well as the millions of friends and family who visit them, and the 9,000 dedicated NHS staff who care for them. The projects we fund improve the hospital environment, support ground breaking research, provide specialist medical training and recognition for staff and state-of-the-art equipment.

Founded 1996
