Our brilliant researchers are dedicated to improving those people’s lives and giving them more precious moments with their families. But to make life-changing medical breakthroughs, our researchers need funding that is ongoing and sustainable.
It’s people like you – mums and dads, sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, aunts and uncles, and friends – who power these discoveries.

The Common Good is an initiative of The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation, established to help people live healthier for longer. The researchers we support dedicate their time to making breakthroughs because they want to improve patient outcomes and quality of life. They say it’s the solutions they find that may help others that keep them going.
The journey to reaching medical breakthroughs is not a fast or easy one. It has many ups and downs and can span years.
We aim to sustain the work of our incredible researchers over this time because every hour could mean they’re taking another step towards a medical breakthrough that may go on to change – or save – lives.
