Friends Of Braintree Community Hospital
The Friends of Braintree Community Hospital was founded and set up by volunteers in 2011; it's aims:
- to raise funds to support the work of the hospital,
- improving patient comfort and care,
- and to provide a voice for the health needs of people in Braintree.
Since becoming a charity, it is surprising how many contributions from the Friends, have been donated to the hospital, enabling the purchase of ward equipment, garden supplies and toys for the outpatient waiting areas. The Friends have also made donations to a number of health related local Braintree charities.
The largest project funded by the Friends, was the purchase of an additional defibrillator for the ground floor of the hospital. This has proved to be an invaluable purchase.
