Organisation Name
Friends of the Royal United Hospital Bath

The Friends of the RUH provide amenities and comforts for patients and relatives which could not otherwise be provided by the NHS. This includes having volunteers across the hospital, fundraising and a coffee Shop and shop that are open 7 days a week.

When people think of the Hospital Friends, they perhaps don't realise that we have 20 different volunteer teams across the hospital doing a range of activities.

These teams seem to grow each year as more needs are met within the hospital. Quite apart from the satisfaction of helping others and feeling needed, by having so many opportunities it means that there is all sorts of work to suit every ones taste. So if you enjoy working with people, like the idea of working in a shop or prefer to be out doors gardening, there will be an opportunity that suits your interests.
