Christmas 2020


We are placing a Christmas tree on the island outside the entrance to the hospital reception. The Hospital has also approved that we can hold a distanced Carol singsong around the tree on Saturday evening 12 December at 6pm.
This will be a socially distanced meeting with family groups spaced at least 3 m apart and singing facing forwards not to the side.
Carol song word sheets will be available and  prerecorded music will be played.
It will be possible to stand in the car park to maintain the necessary separation. Wrap up to keep warm; the current weather forecast is 5 degrees C and low probability of rain. Hope to see you there.

Mission Statement


The Friends of Fareham Community Hospital provide support to the Fareham Community Hospital and help to link it with the community which it serves. We provide guidance to users on entering the hospital, operate dementia friendly memory clubs, raise funds for transport, equipment and materials which are outwith the budget of the NHS; encourage local organisations and businesses to support the Hospital where appropriate, and raise awareness of the services available at the hospital.


FFCH, as we call it, was started in June 2010 soon after the Hospital was established. Set up as a charity in September 2011, the Friends’ objectives are:

  • to provide Volunteers for a welcoming and guided stewarding service for patients and to help man certain reception desks
  • to publicise the Hospital’s services and activities throughout the community
  • to encourage local organisations and businesses to support the Hospital where appropriate
  • to bring to the attention of the Hospital staff any concerns or suggestions from the public of which they may become aware, for instance the need for the return of a local centre for medical equipment loans.
