Barts Guild is a continuously active charity at St Bartholomew’s Hospital. We run the shop that’s based in the atrium of the KGV Building, operate the trolley service that delivers our shop to the wards, and we give grants to support the care to patients provided by the dedicated staff at Barts.
Our activities are only possible due to the commitment of our volunteers, many of whom have been with the Guild for at least a decade, and the support from our members and donors.
We have recently established a relationship with the Barts and The London Students’ Association (BLSA) and welcomed students studying medicine and dentistry at Barts as members of the Guild. In addition we have provided funds for students experiencing hardship to receive some financial support.
During the past year the Guild has installed smart tills in the shop and on the trolley, and undertaken an extensive refit of the shop that has enabled us to expand our product line and enhance the customer experience. This investment will allow the Guild to generate more funds and enable us to continue supporting St Bartholomew’s Hospital as it moves towards its 900th anniversary.
