Raising funds to provide facilities, support services and equipment to patients at the RUH

The Friends of the RUH provide much needed support by helping patients and their relatives throughout the hospital in a variety of ways. Our work is funded from both much needed donations and profits from both the Hospital Shop and Friends Coffee Shop.
