Welcome to the Launceston League of Friends Website
Launceston Hospital League of Friends was formed in 1971, to provide extras for patients. When the Medical Centre moved to Landlake Road we changed our constitution to include the community, allowing us to provide equipment for the Surgery and Community Nurses.
We have spent many thousands of pounds over the years on equipment for the hospital ensuring we have one of the best in the area. We give Birthday, Christmas, Easter, cards and Gifts to all patients in the hospital. We provide money for doctors and medical staff to purchase equipment, to benefit us, the patients, who use the surgery and the many departments at the hospital. A few of the departments which have benefited from our work are Ward Day Rooms, Wards, Physiotherapy, Out-patients, Consultants rooms, Midwives and Community Nurses, Occupational Therapy Department, Bereavement Counselling Room and all departments at the Medical Centre
Money for all our projects is achieved by fund raising, donations from groups and individuals in our area, and the many people who give donations in lieu of flowers. Our thanks and appreciation to all who support us in this valuable work.
The committee meets every other month at the Hospital. Chairman is Pam Parnell.
