24th MAY 2019

The new Radiology Department at Cranleigh Village Hospital was officially opened by the Rt Hon Anne Milton M.P. on 24th May. The Cranleigh League of Friends donated £400,000 to pay for the new department which will provide x-ray and ultrasound services at the hospital with the Cranleigh Evening Women's Institute donating £6000 to furnish it. This donation follows on from a previous donation by the Cranleigh League of Friends of £89,932 for ultrasound equipment which will sit in the new x-ray department.

Chairman Dianne Davies said "The League of Friends of Cranleigh Village Hospital is delighted to be able to finance this new x-ray and ultrasound department through the generous donations of our community. The League uses all its donations to fund end of life care, equipment for the Health Centre and to develop new services for our community at the old hospital. This is a wonderful example of our continuing partnership with Royal Surrey County Hospital, bringing services closer to home".


The League is delighted to have been chosen by the Co-op in Cranleigh as its local charity. The Co-op will support the League with its fundraising activities and collection boxes have been installed by the tills in the store. All proceeds will go towards improved facilities in the Vilage Hospital Outpatients Department.


A Grant to Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care at Home which was agreed in April 2018 funded 33% of the Hospice Care at Home model of care to Cranleigh residents during April 2018 to March 2019, which has helped to provide more home visits, telephone contact and support from the multidisciplinary Hospice Care at Home team. 36 patients were supported by the Hospice Care at Home team during this period.

The Grant of £25,000 to Phyllis Tuckwell was renewed for a further 12 months in April 2019.
