The Northern Sydney Local Health District

The Northern Sydney Local Health District is one of eight metropolitan health districts of Sydney. The vision for the Northern Sydney Local Health District is to be 'leaders in healthcare, partners in wellbeing'

By 2022 the population of the Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD) is expected to reach almost one million people. NORTH Foundation partners with several hospitals and research facilities within the NSLHD including Royal North Shore Hospital, Ryde Hospital, Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital, and the Kolling Institute of Medical Research to raise much needed funds. Fundraising is vital to ensure the NSLHD can meet any challenges ahead by embracing discovery and learning, building partnerships and engaging the community, to deliver excellent health and wellbeing.

Donations to all hospitals and research facilities will have a direct impact on the patients we help. The gifts we receive enable life-saving equipment to be purchased, the provision of the best in patient care and funding of 'bench to bedside' research.

When choosing to support one of the hospitals or research sites you can select the area your donation will support. This may be the area of most need or one that holds special significance to you or a loved one.
