If anyone asks you for upfront payments towards a regular lottery or raffle benefiting Danesbury Neurological Centre or Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital, THIS IS A SCAM!  No such scheme exists.

Important Announcement:  Our AGM will be on Tuesday 23rd October, when an amendment to our Objects and Rules will be proposed.  Please go to our Recent News page for details.


The Friends exist to support the work of the National Health Services based at The Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital and the Danesbury Neurological Centre in Welwyn, Hertfordshire.

hospitalSet in pleasant, rural surroundings, these two hospitals together provide support and specialist therapy for patients having a wide range of debilitating conditions. In the great majority of cases, these patients are able to make significant progress towards a better life, thanks to the skills, care and dedication of the staff.

The NHS is always short of resources and we raise money, from donations and through the operation of our charity shop, which enables us to purchase equipment, services and facilities which directly benefit patients. We also help the staff in their efforts to provide the highest standards of care.

Our website will tell you more about the work done at the Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital and the Danesbury Neurological Centre.
