NHS Retirement Fellowship

1 March 2023

Are you retired from the NHS or Social Care? Would you like to become a member of the NHS Retirement Fellowship? Established in 1978, the NHS Retirement Fellowship is a registered charity with a membership of over 9000 members and 130 branches. The Charity are keen to open branches in the Cumbria area.
