Our Memory Tree takes pride of place in Hayward House reception, and represents the special memories that continue to grow after a loved one has died.Whether they have been treated at Hayward House, elsewhere in City Hospital, or have a different connection to Nottingham’s NHS hospitals, dedicating a leaf is a wonderful way to remember and celebrate a life, and make a real difference to end-of-life patient care here in Nottingham too.

Leaving your dedication on the Memory Tree
Our Memory Tree has 450 leaves. Each one is engraved in tribute to a loved one or in recognition of our staff.
You have a choice of three leaf options for your dedication, each with a suggested donation amount.
- Bronze - £90
- Silver - £150
- Gold - £250
Your leaf will remain on the Memory Tree for one year. At the end of this period you will be invited to renew your leaf for another year or have it delivered to you in a special keepsake box to treasure at home.
