The History of The Lodge
The Lodge, built by charity donations, opened as Heartswell Lodge in 2001 to accommodate heart carers in an affordable and supportive environment, while their loved ones were being treated. Given its success, it now offers its facilities to carers of all types of patient, both at Derriford and elsewhere.
The Lodge is run by an Honorary Board and any operating surplus is donated to the founding charity, Heartswell South West, to help support their future activities.
