Chairman's Report

An Invitation to Join Our Committee

Friends of Townlands Memorial Hospital

This treasured local Charity was set up by public meeting in Henley in 1955 and is still run by local Trustees as a purely voluntary body.

Funding comes from small annual membership subscriptions, social fundraising events, donations and legacies. 

We focus on carefully considered purchases and initiatives to help augment the provision of “one stop`’ medical services at our valued Community Hospital and to enhance the “patient experience”.

Our Committee includes medical representatives who help appraise the quality of any bids to our fund.

Chairman’s Report - Year Ending 28 February 2019

Since our last AGM, we have made significant progress in providing equipment to help the developing range of outpatient services at Townlands.

Following the AGM presentation by Dr Antoni Chan, Assistant Medical Director and Rheumatology Consultant,  we agreed to fund the entire cost of an ultrasound scanner using the substantial legacy left by our late Chairman, Gerry Andrews.

We facilitated a Bid by Dr Bogdanovic, Neurological Consultant, for a special hand held device and the underwriting of its cost by the Townlands Action Group in memory of the late Cllr Terry Buckett MBE.
