The Stroud Hospitals League of Friends within the local community

The League of Friends was formed in 1948, but we have our roots in the voluntary provision of health services at the Stroud hospitals in the century and a half before this.

Today, we are the channel for the community’s generosity and care for our hospitals, the health centre and the ambulance station. We work in partnership with staff and patients and strive to provide support in a wise and caring manner.

We are known for our vigorous defence of valuable services that are threatened, but we also seek to support the intelligent development of services in co-operation with Clinical Commissioning Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire Care Services NHS Trust, Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the 2gether NHS Foundation Trust to ensure we always keep abreast of the latest medical advances.

We also provide support to patients and visitors at the hospital, offering refreshments, newspapers, friendly faces, even a relatives’ overnight room, and a touch of festive cheer for those patients in hospital over Christmas.
