Trolley service is back in action at Bognor Regis War Memorial Hospital

Having been suspended during the pandemic, the trolley service at the Bognor Regis War Memorial Hospital on Shripney Road has made a triumphant, and much anticipated, return last week.

Selling sweet, toiletries and easy-to-forget necessities like combs and chewing gum, the hospital trolley has been out of action throughout the pandemic, in order to keep patients as safe as possible from Covid-19.

Last week, though, the trolley made it’s return serving Bognor Regis War Memorial Hospital’s two wards throughout the afternoons.

The service, provided by The Friends of Bognor Hospital, was ‘well-received’ by visitors, patients and staff and volunteers hope to revive the hospital’s tea bar and shop soon.

“It goes on the wards at two o’clock and, on Friday (September 10) we actually made double figures, which is very good,” said Brian Knight, MBE, the chairman of the Friends of Bognor Hospital.

“Not that we do it for the money, but obviously it does produce a bit of income for the hospital.”
