Working in Partnership with VirginCare and North East Hampshire and Farnham CCG. The Primary aim of the Friends is to raise funds to improve the care and wellbeing of the patients at the Hospital and GP Practices by providing extra equipment and facilities above those which are funded and provided for by the NHS.  The Friends also aim to increase the profile of Farnham Hospital and Centre for Health through the local press, membership and connections with community groups and businesses.

The Committee meet six times a year at the hospital to consider requests received from the wards, departments and GPs, organise events such as buying and distributing Christmas Presents for all in-patients during the Festive Season and delivering   Strawberry Cream Teas in the Summer.  The AGM usually takes place in the Spring.
