The Princess Royal Hospital League of Friends’ team of 24 cyclists in the Haywards Heath Bike Ride raised £1,230 for the League’s continuing work to provide equipment and resources for patients. Some of the funds will go towards the development of a Rapid Access Medical Unit for seriously ill patients to be assessed and treated overnight without disturbing in-patients on medical wards. The League also had stalls on the bike ride route and at the end and thanked all its supporters.
The League of Friends provides many services, facilities and equipment for the Princess Royal in Haywards Heath, which would not be provided otherwise. They include the cafe in the hospital’s reception on the ground floor and the shop.
