Hello and welcome to the Tiverton Hospital League of Friends’ website.


The Tiverton Hospital League of Friends was formed in 1964 and is a group of volunteers from the local community.  Their main purpose is to provide funds for equipment and all aspects of comfort and care, for the benefit of patients and staff throughout the various departments of the hospital.  Its support was originally for the old Tiverton and District Hospital until its closure in 2004.  This was then replaced by a newly built hospital which was officially opened by H.R.H. The Princess Royal on 11th April 2005.


In addition the League provides support to patients, staff and visitors from our small shop, where we can supply newspapers, books, refreshments and many other essential items.
