Queen Elizabeth Hospital Community Trust

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Community Trust is a charitable trust with representation from the local community.

It is the sole owner of QE Health and a “not for profit” organisation, so all benefits are returned to the community through the services provided at QE Health. The directors of QE Health are appointed by the Trust.

Trustees represent the following community interest groups:

  • Pukeroa Oruawhata representing the Te Arawa people - one member
  • QEH Patient's Association - one member
  • Rotorua Lakes Council - one member
  • Five additional  - appointed according to their skills, knowledge, connections, standing and experience.


Donations and bequests are gratefully accepted to further the work of the trust.

From time to time the trust oversees special projects, which may be advertised separately to raise extra funds. You can help us by donating to the QEH Community Trust Funds.

Trust funds are prudently invested and managed by Spicers Investment Advisors.

Guided by the requirements of QE Health, Trustees on the QEH Community Trust ensure that donations contribute to initiatives such as improvements to facilities, new technology, vital research, preventative programmes and staff training. 

QE Health is a charity and donations will get a tax rebate.


Supporters of the Trust funded the writing an production of "HOSPITAL ON A HOTSPOT"
by Susan Butterworth - a history of QE Health
"This warmly written, warts and all account of Rotorua's Queen Elizabeth Hospital makes a refreshing change to many bookpallid historical works.
... From easily accessible documents, the author has stitched all the nuggets and minutiae into a splendid whole, often drawing necessary and correct conclusions."
Phil Campbell, "Rotorua Review" 02 May 2012

While the book can't be sold for profit koha/donation to cover the investment the QEH Community Trust made to this project is appreciated.
As a guideline, and as this is a frequently asked question, koha has usually been anything from $10 - $30.

It is available for purchase at Spa reception. Or can be posted out for $6.00.
