The Village Surgeries Equipment Fund was started in 1985 and has run continuously since then.
The aim is to provide additional equipment that is not funded by the NHS which can be used both in the surgery and the community, for the benefit and comfort of our patients. The fund is funded by fundraising and donations.
Over recent months we have spent over £5000 on the following items:
- World-Class INR Software
- A Fridge
- A Microlife Watch
- A Spirometry Machine
- 2 Oxymeters and Parts
- 3 Ear and Eye Scopes
Without the help of the Equipment Fund we would simply not have been able to obtain these items. The fund is very grateful that we are able to buy these items which enable our patients to be treated in the surgery rather than travelling to hospitals, and in some cases provide equipment that performs procedures that are simply not available on the NHS.
We have set up a '100' club to raise money for the fund, where you have a 1/100 chance of winning a prize. Numbers cost £10 each and are now on sale. If you would like to buy a 100 Club ticket or make a donation please contact our Chairman - Ian Menzies - on 01829 271023.
