Leaving a lasting legacy

Leaving a gift in a Will makes a huge difference to to future of all our patients and staff. No matter how large or small your gift, it could fund vital treatments, medical training, equipment and research. We are grateful for every penny.


Our Gift in Will brochure tells you everything you need to know about making a Will with practical advice to make the process as simple as possible. 


Whether you want to update an existing Will, or you’re planning to write your first Will, leaving a gift to charity is easy to do. An up-to-date Will ensures your wishes for your family and any charities you support will be clearly understood.


When you leave a gift to Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Charity in your Will, we promise:


  • Your loved ones come first – we respect that
  • We’ll use your gift wisely and effectively
  • If you want your gift to be spent in an area that’s special to you, we can arrange that
  • We won’t put you under pressure.


Dying without a Will can create many problems for those left behind, at an already difficult time. Here are some tips to help you make your Will.


Getting started

You may have a family solicitor you already use. If not, ask a relative or friend to recommend one. If you are making your Will with your partner, you can make a ‘mirror’ (identical) Will if they are broadly the same.


Making a new Will

Before you begin the Will making process, it is a good idea to think about: 

  • the main things you own - like a house, shares, endowments, savings or life insurance policies - and roughly what they are worth
  • who you would like to include - after you have looked after your loved ones, we do hope you’ll consider leaving a gift to the Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Charity in your Will
  • who your executor(s) will be?
  • what kinds of gifts you want to leave the people and charities you care about – items like a house or valuables (called 'specific' gifts), or money (which includes both ‘pecuniary'  and ‘residuary' gifts)


Updating your existing Will

It is important to keep your Will up to date. It is a good idea to review your Will if your circumstances change - for example getting married or having children. Before you update your Will, think about:


  • the main things you own - like a house, shares, endowments, savings or life insurance policies - and roughly what they are worth?
  • who you would like to include - after you have looked after your loved ones, we do hope you’ll consider leaving a gift to the Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Charity in your Will,
  • who your executor(s) will be?
  • what kinds of gifts you want to leave the people and charities you care about – items like a house or valuables (called 'specific' gifts), or money (which includes both ‘pecuniary'  and ‘residuary' gifts)
