Chalfonts and Gerrards Cross Hospital League of Friends
During the past 60 years the League of Friends has worked to support Chalfonts and Gerrards Cross Hospital by supplementing the funding available from the NHS to ensure that Staff have the equipment and facilities needed to provide the local community with good medical and nursing services.
The closure of the in-patient services and the emphasis to keep people as close to home as possible have led to them focusing on improving out-patient facilities; including the rental of a car which enables the nurses to deliver equipment and care urgently and in all weathers.
If you are interested in supporting the League of Friends please get in touch via their contact page.
