Working at ACT

ACT raises funds to support Addenbrooke's and the Rosie - the Cambridge University Hospitals. Thanks to the generous support of ACT’s donors, the Hospitals can provide a level of patient care beyond that which NHS funding alone can deliver, and make projects happen more quickly or to a greater degree, than might otherwise be possible.
