Sub-category: Charities & Voluntary Sector


Nearly 30 years ago, in 1977, recognising the need for funds to support the research aspirations of the School of Medicine, then Professor, now Sir Donald Acheson - along with Lord Northbrook and others - founded the Southampton and Wessex Medical School Trust: a registered charity with the objects of raising funds to support medical research, education and practice.

Unlike other long-established medical schools such as Oxford, the School of Medicine - which was established just four years earlier in 1972 - had no 'pot of gold' built up over many years from grateful former students, etc, from which bursaries and grants could be awarded.

During the past 21 years we have raised some £15 million in voluntary donations - every single penny of which has been applied in full by our Trustees to support vital medical research projects, but the need is always to do more: to fund research to fight disease; to tackle the underlying causes of ill health in our community; to find better treatments and, potentially, cures for conditions that affect every age group - from infant asthma to Alzheimer's dementia in our aged population - and many, many more conditions that affect each and every one of us.
