Barnet Hospital Charity
We work to make the hospital a nicer environment for patients, volunteers and staff. Our projects include providing free massage therapy to patients and care packs to those who have been admitted through A&E and have brought nothing with them. All money raised will go to Barnet Hospital.
Just a few of the things we do include managing the hospital volunteers and providing the little touches like toys and DVD’s to keep children entertained while they are waiting in A&E. We provide and look after the art work that brightens up the walls and we fundraise to purchase specialist medical equipment and improvements to the hospital.
Over the next year we will be expanding our successful Massage Therapy service to make it available to more patients and we are raising funds for other multiple projects which enhance the patient environment and provide cutting edge additional equipment.
We currently have a real need for more volunteers at Barnet hospital. This could be to meet and greet people and help people find their way around. There are also roles for people that would like to work on the wards and we urgently need volunteers to help with the fundraising side of the charity, for example collections in local supermarkets, helping at events and office support. We have many different volunteering roles both within the hospital, outside of the hospital or office based.
Emergency care packs
We make up and provide personal care packs that include soap, a toothbrush and toothpaste etc. for patients who may have been admitted through A&E and have brought nothing with them. The care packs are made up by our volunteers and are one of our little touches that make a big difference to patients.
Find out more about how we make a difference.
The Massage Therapy service was launched at Barnet Hospital in April 2015. It is about treating the person and not the illness, and for many patients it is the high point of their day.
The service is available to oncology and haematology patients on the Mulberry ward and was expanded in November 2015 to maternity patients. We are raising funds to extend it to be more widely available to other patients in the future. Read more about the Massage Therapy service
