Welcome to the website of the
Scunthorpe Hospital League of Friends . . .

. . . a voluntary organisation that is as vibrant and active today as it was when founded back in 1948.

The intervening years have seen this organisation accomplish a multitude of fund-raising activities and also receive legacies and donations from the public enabling them to provide a huge support network to the local Scunthorpe Hospital.

The Scunthorpe League of Friends supplements the service provided by the Scunthorpe General Hospital for health, welfare and comfort of the patients, and works closely with The Health Tree Foundation and the NHS Foundation Trust.
