The League comprises a small committee who organise all the events and run the library trolley; a group of volunteers who ran the confectionary and toiletries trolley when there were more patients and help with store collections; a garden group who maintains the courtyard garden, coffee shop garden and planters; plus members of the local community who support the work of the League by paying a membership subscription. The committee meets every other month and both the Community Hospitals’ Matron and a ward Matron are invited, ensuring close co-operation between the League and the hospital. We have regular contact with a representative from the service providers at the hospital so that we are aware of short and long term plans. The current service provider is the Royal Surrey NHS Trust, a partnership between the Royal Surrey County Hospital and the local GPs in Guildford and Waverley.
New members are much needed and always welcome, both for the trolley services and for the committee. It is not an arduous commitment: if you would like more information please contact us.
