 The League of Friends 


Formed in 1952, The League of Friends (LoF)  helps the hospital by providing extra equipment, enhancing facilities and campaigning for better services for patients and staff. Protect and enhance the hospital in these times of political and financial changes.

The role of the LoF is to:​

  • Raise the profile of the hospital by regular communication to the public, through the website, Facebook, local newspapers

  • Raise funds for equipment and funds for the Hospital not available within NHS budget limitations.

  • Act as a focus between hospital and community, and as a conduit between the health care providers, the NHS and the community the hospital serves

  • Monitor any likely detrimental changes to the hospital or its facilities

  • Act as a pressure group in order to prevent losses of essential services to the community

  • Run a trolley shop in the wards

  • Provide an annual newsletter

  • Provide regular newsletter updates to members

LoF remains the one constant, in times of political and financial changes to the the national health services. We aim to accelerate NHS reforms so that they can better accommodate the choice of provider, and bring care closer to home. Our ‘reason for being’ is to retain and enhance Haslemere as a focal point for care in the local community. A high priority is to support increased out-patient clinics and diagnostic investigations and treatments locally, so that our hospital may become less vulnerable in the future. This is an area in which we can financially help the NHS to develop at Haslemere.
