OUR CHARITY FOR 2019
In the late 1980s the NHS run Tetbury Hospital was threatened with closure. The people of Tetbury raised over £1million to buy the hospital and Tetbury Hospital Trust Ltd was set up as a charity to run the hospital for the benefit of the people of Tetbury and the surrounding areas.
The Friends of Tetbury Hospital, with HRH The Prince of Wales as Patron, is the fundraising arm of the Trust. They play a vital role in providing new equipment and services for the hospital and celebrated their 25th anniversary this year.
Over 95% of the hospital’s services are commissioned by the NHS, however the hospital does not have access to capital funding and the income from the NHS can only cover clinical activity. The Friends are therefore fundraising this year for a new treatment room and associated equipment to enable the hospital to offer a greater range of treatments to the local community. We are extremely grateful for the continued support from the local community and in particular Shipton Moyne and this wonderful Opera. All funds raised will go directly into equipment at Tetbury Hospital.
Thank you to the organisers and all attending for their generous support of our unique hospital.
