HOW WE SPEND THE MONEY RAISED
Each month the executive committee of the League of Friends meet to consider requests for equipment and financial assistance from consultants, doctors and nursing staff at the hospital. The requests come from all areas of need within the hospital. The requests we support cover a wide range of need and include bereavement booklets for use in the chapel by grieving families that cost a few hundred pounds, to major items of equipment as seen below.
During the last two years the Friends of the RSH have gifted £1.3 million to the Royal Shrewsbury.
Most recently gifted –
£44,000 for two new ultrasound machines for the Shropshire Screening Programme for the early detection of aneurisms.
£55, 950 for Breast screening equipment.
£166,200 for Surgery trolley for the Day Surgery Unit.
