A little about the Hospital Saturday Fund
The Hospital Saturday Fund is a UK and Ireland charity that was founded in 1873 by pioneers in social and philanthropic work to help people to afford medical care. The Fund has 'tailored' its benefits to suit modern needs and these are now offered through HSF health plan, one of the leading health cash plans in the UK and Ireland. Profits from the trading company, HSF health plan, are channelled into the parent charity, The Hospital Saturday Fund, to enable these charity donations to be made.
