From a simple microwave for a ward whose staff want to heat up home-made food on their lunch break to a million-pound investment in a surgical robot to keep the DGH at the forefront of prostate cancer treatment, the Friends will consider and consequently fundraise for any equipment, amenity or service that the hospital, its staff and consequently its patients, need.
