After a complete refurbishment the League of Friends cafe has officially been reopened in the main building at George Eliot Hospital. 

The Trust welcomed Marcus Jones, Member of Parliament for Nuneaton, to formally open the facility which was original closed in March 2020 at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Since then the café has undergone a complete refurbishment to update facilities and provide patients, visitors and staff with a comfortable environment in the hospital to get a refreshment and relax. 

Speaking at the opening Marcus Jones described the café as a ‘jewel in the crown of George Eliot Hospital’ provided by the League of Friends who are a dedicated group of volunteers who truly care and understand the needs of staff and patients. 

Chair of the League of Friends, Elaine Breeze, paid tribute to everyone who had put time and effort into the refurbishment with a special thank you to the volunteers and estates team who made it all possible. 

David Eltringham, Managing Director of George Eliot Hospital, shared the appreciation for work to reopen the café, describing it as a ‘welcoming and calming’ environment at the heart of George Eliot.
