The League of Friends of the Leatherhead Hospital was formed in 1960 to provide facilities and amenities for patients and staff. It is a registered charity, relying entirely on volunteers. Our Aim is to raise money through subscriptions, donations, legacies and activities to secure the future, and develop the services, of Leatherhead Hospital. The League of Friends works closely with the medical and administrative staff of the community hospital to achieve our objectives by turning donations and gifts into valuable contributions to the running and development of the hospital. Membership of the League of Friends is open to everyone.

We liaise with the hospital staff on a regular basis and provide much needed support in adding vital equipment or simple comforts which cannot be funded by the NHS.

The League of Friends is governed by a committee of unpaid Trustees, and the contacts are the Honorary Officers.

Members elect the trustees and approve their activities at an annual general meeting. The meeting concludes with a presentation on a topic relating to the hospital particularly the medical activities.

Leatherhead Hospital stands in large grounds close to the town centre. Built in 1940 entirely by public subscription, the history of Leatherhead Cottage Hospitals is described elsewhere in this website.
