BODMIN HOSPITAL LEAGUE OF FRIENDS



The new Bodmin Hospital was completed in 2002 and opened by Prince Charles in June that year, amalgamating the old East Cornwall Hospital and St Lawrences Hospital.


It was the first hospital to be built in Cornwall for 50 years at a cost of just over £10 million. At that time the league of Friends of East Cornwall hospital and St Lawrences Hospital amalgamated to form the Friends of Bodmin Hospital (recently changed to League of Friends of Bodmin Hospital to be in line with other leagues throughout the county) and since then have continued their work to provide equipment and care for patients and staff which is not supplied by the NHS.


We raise money in many ways, the biggest annual fundraiser being the Fete which is held in June every year, but in addition to that the ‘Friends’ work tirelessly raising money through coffee mornings, variety concerts, quiz nights, an annual Christmas tree fayre, sponsored walks, charity shop days as well as receiving money from bequests and donations from local groups such as Young Farmers, Rotary Club, Lions Club and many local businesses to whom they are very grateful.


One of our most important projects at the present time is to push for additional storage space for the Stroke Unit to enable an End of Life Room on Anchor Ward, where patients and their families can find privacy and comfort.





We work to raise funds for the purchase of equipment and services for the hospital, patients, and staff which is not supplied by the NHS.

The Hospital Covers a huge area - from Bude and Launceston down to Newquay and St Austell - and everywhere in between.

Bodmin Community Hospital consists of a Minor Injuries Unit, two General Wards, a Stroke Unit, five Mental Health Wards and a Renal Dialysis Unit amongst other services offered. 





We are always looking to raise money for the work we do and to try to make it easier for people to either set up fundraising, make a one off donation or to set up a monthly donation we have set up a Virgin Money Giving Page, please click on the logo to take you to their site. Its easy and quick to do, every donation really makes a big difference whether its small or large.
