East Grinstead NHS trust gets £50000 Scientology gift A £50,000 donation from the Church of Scientology to an NHS hospital has been labelled "completely inappropriate".
The Queen Victoria Hospital is in East Grinstead, West Sussex, where the US-based church has its UK headquarters.
A spokeswoman said the decision to accept the money was "considered in the context of all relevant guidelines".
Ex-Liberal Democrat health spokesman Norman Lamb MP said: "It is completely inappropriate for an NHS trust to accept funds from this organisation."
The Church of Scientology has not commented. BBC News
