Please don't send cards and gifts to anonymous military patients at QEHB this Christmas.

Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) and the Ministry of Defence (MoD) are encouraging those wishing to send gifts and cards to injured soldiers to visit the official hospital charity website for alternative ways of showing support this Christmas.

The sheer volume of Christmas cards which the hospital receives shows just how much goodwill exists for our injured troops, but the mountain of cards we receive also overwhelms our Facilities Team and can cause backlogs in processing mail from GPs and patients.

There are a number of ways to show support for our military patients – please see the charity websites for further information.
