Who we are

The Friends of Farnborough Hospital was founded in the 1950’s with the specific aim of improving the everyday life of patients and staff.

In 2003 a new hospital was built on the site of the old Farnborough Hospital and named Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH).
The Friends of the hospital changed its name accordingly and, with the closure of Bromley Hospital, incorporated the Friends of Bromley Hospital.

The Friends of the PRUH has been a registered charity, no. 231071, since June 1964 and is run entirely by its Trustees.

Our charitable objectives are:

  • To mobilise, encourage and foster the interest of the public in the patients and staff of the hospital.
  • To support the work of the PRUH and Green Parks House (Bromley Inpatient Unit) both within the hospital and the community.
  • To provide funds for the purpose of supplementing, in such manner as the Friends think fit, the resources of the NHS in the London Borough of Bromley.
  • To provide a link between the PRUH and Green Parks House and the community they serve.

The Friends of the PRUH is affiliated to Attend which is a national charity that supports and expands the roles volunteers play in creating healthy communities.
