We are slowly recovering from the pandemic and the hospital has safely opened up its services again to support the local community and surrounding areas. The Friends will continue to raise money for essential medical equipment and facilities that are not funded by
the NHS.

Friends of Tetbury Hospital

In the late 1980s the NHS-run Tetbury Hospital was threatened with closure, so the people of the town decided to raise over a million pounds to ‘buy’ it. 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 area.

The Friends of Tetbury Hospital was established at the same time. His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is the Patron and His Grace The Duke of Beaufort is the President.

The Friends to play an important role in fundraising to provide the hospital with essential new and replacement medical equipment and facilities. The hospital does not receive any funding from the NHS for capital projects and equipment so fundraising will always be vital.
