The Friends raise funds with the help of many local organisations and their team of dedicated collectors. They run events such as the Summer Fete to both raise funds and their profile. Many local people have also been kind enough to leave the Friends a legacy. These, together with donations from grateful patients and relatives, help to support the hospital's major development projects.

The Friends provide services and equipment that the NHS cannot or will not supply, or in a number of cases, equipment to a far higher specification to make the life of both patients and staff a bit easier. Projects the Friends have supported so far include:

  • Refurbishment of the Physiotherapy Unit gym. An Anti-Gravity Treadmill was also provided, which can alter the body weight of the user to aid faster recuperation for patients recovering from hip and knee surgery and enable patients to exercise who would otherwise be unable to
  • TVs
  • Refurbishment of gardens across the site
  • Wispa Hoist
  • Hearing loops
  • Two reclining chairs for the Rheumatology infusion suite

The Friends is a Registered Charity, No. 252215.
