We understand that it can be difficult not being able to visit your loved ones in hospital. With support from our Volunteers team, we have set up a service to allow you to bring in personal items that can be passed on to patients on our wards.
This service is available at both the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) and King’s College Hospital. You can drop off items at the below locations at the times listed seven days a week:
Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH)
Time slot: 12pm to 3pm
Drop-off point: Main entrance at the main reception desk
King’s College Hospital
Time slot: 12pm to 7pm
Drop-off point: Main entrance, Hambleden Wing, opposite the helpdesk
Our volunteers will label the items you bring in and make sure they reach the right person. If you are in touch with your loved one, you can also arrange to pick something up from them via the drop-off point at an agreed date and time during the time slots above.
If you are collecting items from hospital please ensure that you do the following once you get home:
