The Friendly Shop was opened in 2003 and sells goods at a nominal rate which have been donated by the public. It is a service which is valued by patients who generally have a very small income, and nursing staff whose small state salaries are stretched to the limit. It is also an oasis for patients and staff, who are welcomed and befriended and encouraged by the Shop staff member and volunteers.
