About This Web Site & Its Author
The NHSRF is a National Organisation for the retired, or those due to retire from employment of any kind in the National Health Service (NHS). It is also open to Volunteers and those who worked for Service Providers to the NHS i.e. Contract catering, cleaning, laundry etc. Previous employees who left the service prior to retirement are also eligible.
The organisation has Branches all over the UK but if there is no local branch, membership is still possible by contacting the National Office. This site is principally about the Peterborough Branch but we are fairly typical of most Branches. There is a page devoted to theNational Organisation where contact details can be found.
