The Friends of Queen Mary’s Hospital are all volunteers who give their time and support to the hospital. The Friends’ Committee meets every other month, and the AGM is held in October.
The Friends co-ordinate the Volunteers and organise fund-raising events which enable them to finance additional hospital equipment and facilities in order to improve the lives of the patients and the nursing staff.
The Friends have recently provided:-
A Sensory Room to rehabilitate the elderly. Special equipment for amputees in the gym.
Tilt wheelchairs for the Paediatric Unit. Football table, punch bag and art materials for the Mental Health Wards. Paging system for the Radiology Dept. Music system for the Ward.
Maintenance of a garden especially designed for Amputee Rehabilitation
The Volunteers provide invaluable services and activities such as:-
Meet and Greet at Reception. A trolley service for the wards, the gym and outpatient areas.
Entertainment in the wards and celebrating patients’ birthdays. Dog visits to the wards.
Piano and chamber music in Reception. Assist with the general well-being of the patients.
