Flu jab - am I eligible

Friends of the Surgery

FRIENDS OF THE SURGERY

In 1994, Dr Watson & Nurse Sandra Pugh founded the FRIENDS of the Surgery. Their aim was to enable the purchase of amenities for the patients’ benefit, which could not be provided by the NHS. These amenities are usually requested by members of staff; via the Practice Manager.  Over the ensuing 25 years many such ‘extras’ have been funded or part-funded. They include automatic doors; air control in the main waiting room;  a new phlebotomy chair, ECG machine, Audio booth & necessary equipment, sign-in machine, home-use blood-pressure monitors, dopplers, a medical couch, and an intranet TV screen in both waiting areas. The purchase currently in hand is the instalment of an automatic door to the main waiting room.

There is no Joining routine and, therefore no subscriptions. All adult patients (over 16 years of age) are automatically included as “Friends”.

Originally fund-raising events and careful management of a legacy covered the cost of these amenities, but we now need to replenish our funds.                             

Therefore, January 2020 will see the launch a 100 CLUB which we hope will return a steady yearly income and we urge staff and patients to support this Club so that the good work can continue.

Over the next couple of months there will be more information about the 100 CLUB on the intranet TVs, on the Friends’ noticeboard in the waiting room, and in village magazines.                                                    

From the beginning of October explanatory leaflets containing an application form will be available in the waiting areas and from the four external repeat Prescription venues                                                                                                                    The closing date for participation will be 30th November 2019.
