The Harrogate Branch of the Fellowship was formed in 1982 and is the largest in the Yorkshire Region with 156 members.
We have Branch Meetings at 2.00pm on the second Wednesday of each month except August and December. These are held in Starbeck Methodist Church Hall and usually consist of a Business Meeting followed by a Speaker. Also at each Meeting we have a book sale and refreshments. The June meeting is our annual Social and in December we have our Christmas Lunch.
Amongst our members most aspects of healthcare are represented - nurses, health professionals, administration and support staff - and some of us have known each other for many years. We have members who have retired from all the hospitals in the District and from those that have now closed - The General, Scotton Banks, Knaresborough and the Royal Baths. We also have members who have worked in hospitals in other areas of the country.
We enjoy considerable financial support from the Harrogate & District NHS Foundation Trust.
On the following pages of this website are details of our branch and its activities and news of events which we hope you will find interesting and informative. Details of how to join the Branch are given below and on our “Contacts” page.
