Award winning journalist Zoë Chamberlain
has written an absorbing account of the History of the Royal Orthopaedic
Hospital's League of Friends. Founded in 1975 by consultant surgeon Max
Harrison, the League has grown to support all aspects of hospital life
including a Welcoming Service, a Visiting Service, a Gardening Club, a
Hydrotherapy Club and the fundraising Woodlands Travel Club, which has arranged
holidays for the Friends and former patients over the years and which has
sponsored publication of "The Friends".
The League of Friends was heavily involved
in supporting the Hospital's continued existence when it came under threat of
closure from the Secretary of State for Health and in no small part contributed
to the successful fight against such closure.
The book also acknowledges the support given to the hospital by Broadcaster Ed Doolan who has kindly provided the Foreword for "The Friends".
