Friends of the RNHRD

Friends of the RNHRD
The Association of Friends of the RNHRD is a voluntary organisation independent of the NHS and Charitable Fund. We have a large membership from right across the country, and many members are former patients and their families.

We have an active Management Committee who manage the funds and co-ordinate the fund-raising events.  A number of the Committee also work as volunteers in the Hospital, for example, running the mobile library, visiting long-stay patients and liaising with staff.

The Friends’ original aims were adopted in 1948, and the organisation became a registered charity (no. 201666) in 1963. We are also a member of the National Association of Hospital Friends (now known as Attend).  Our President is the Lord Patten of Barnes CH and our Patron the Lord Cope of Berkeley PC.
