Stroud General Hospital
Over the years Stroud League of Friends has made significant contributions to the development of the operating theatre, and to the ultrasound, endoscopy and complex leg would services in particular, in addition to many other areas. Indeed, since the year 2000 alone, the League of Friends has contributed more than £3.5 million. Stroud Hospital benefits by having state-of-the- art equipment and refurbishments that would not otherwise be part of normal NHS provision.
Cashes Green Ward
Specialist beds and mattresses
The League has enhanced standard NHS provision by funding specialist beds and superior mattresses and cushions throughout the hospital, offering greater comfort and care for patients. In total, the League spent £42,697 in 2018 on this to upgrade all wards. In part, this was thanks to a generous donation from a local family, in recognition of the care given at Stroud Hospital.
Stroud is rated among the best in the country for endoscopy, and one of only two community hospitals to be awarded the prestigious JAG accreditation. It continues to be at the forefront of the national screening programme. This is a credit to the medical staff and the support given by the League towards state-of-the-art camera equipment, which is extra to NHS normal provision. In 2018, we contributed £111,512, adding to the £93,219 spent in 2016-7 on endoscopy equipment.
