About Us

Who are we?

The League of Friends is a charitable organisation, run by a voluntary Board of Trustees who ensure that money received is put to the very best use. The Board is supported by many kind and willing volunteers who give their time freely to support the hospital.

The aim of the League of Friends (LoF) of the Lymington New Forest Hospital is to improve the care and comfort of patients, visitors and staff, above and beyond what the NHS can fund and provide.

The League of Friends have supported our wonderful hospitals since 1952, using donations made by local people and organisations, to improve its services.  Currently we are committed to raising a total of £1.39million to improve and refresh the Imaging Suite at the Lymington New Forest Hospital due for completion in 2020/21.  A state of the art CT scanner has been installed and will be operational in summer 2019, purchased with a contribution of £575,000 from the LoF. The LoF will continue to raise money for the scanner appeal to contribute to a replacement MRI scanner expected to be delivered in 2021 to improve patient services at the hospital.
