Welcome to Community Corner…
'Community Corner' is a concept originally created by the Communications & Involvement Team at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust. Its rationale is to help provide the voluntary and community sector with a platform for meeting our hospital community and help us further develop our community partnerships.
It is a dedicated display space for organisations to promote their campaigns and interact with our patients, visitors and staff. Hospital departments and clinics too are invited to showcase their health & wellbeing information during national awareness weeks.
Rotherham Hospital is a healthcare provider at the heart of the local community and equally our local community is at the very heart of everything we do.
Where is it?
Community Corner is situated within the main entrance of Rotherham Hospital. It is located in the opposite corner to the coffee shop, between the main entrance doors
and the wheelchair enclosure.
Who can use it?
Anyone belonging to the local community who has health information or a message they would like to share with our patients, visitors and staff. For example – local voluntary, community or support groups, charities, schools, colleges, hospital departments, health interest groups and our Members & Governors.
The sale of merchandise or fundraising activities in Community Corner is, unfortunately, not encouraged. In some cases, it will be possible but only with the prior agreement of Rotherham Hospital Charity and if they are based on a partnership arrangement. These will need prior approval from Tracy Williams, Charity Development officer on 01709 427589 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org .
