Love Musgrove is the official charity of Musgrove Park Hospital.

We fund things above and beyond what the NHS covers, so we can continue to improve the experience of patients admitted to hospital. We help to create a comfortable, engaging environment for patients that also supports their family and friends.

Love Musgrove also provides staff with training and development opportunities, providing state of the art equipment, and enables wards to buy items which will make our patient’s stay comfortable and help ensure a more pleasant environment for all.

Musgrove Park Hospital serves a population of over 544,000 people across Somerset with over 740 beds, 34 wards, 15 operating theatres, a fully equipped imaging department and a purpose built cancer treatment centre.
