Central Office has now reopened but with only one member of the team in the office each day. The team will continue to work from home at other times. The office phone number 01305 361317 is available for you to leave messages and this will be monitored regularly. Branch meetings are currently suspended.

The NHS Retirement Fellowship provides friendship, fellowship and fun to retired NHS and social care staff and their friends and families, along with access to a great range of discounts and benefits. Join us to make new friends, rediscover past friendships and socialise with like minded people in one of our many branches. Alternatively you could become a National member to be kept informed of our activities and to take advantage of the discounts and benefits, without attending branch meetings. For media enquiries, please contact Lucia Hiden, Head of Communications, on 07739 138 954 or email comms@nhsrf.org.uk
