"The Khoo Teck Puat UK Foundation focuses on funding medical research and facilities, promoting education and supporting the underprivileged, particularly children. The Foundation has previously supported several children’s medical centres in the UK but this is their first gift to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital". Chelsea and Westminster is not in an area of "underprivileged" residents. It certainly has world-class medical research and facilities. As so often the best staffed, most clued-up, most wealthy hospital trusts scoop funds which might actually be better spent on community maternity units, say in Ealing. But then Ealing Hospital lost its Maternity Unit, in the teeth of local opposition, in June 2015.
