Haddenham Medical Centre has purchased a new ECG machine, an instrument that measures the electrical activity of the heart to show whether or not it is working normally.
An ECG records the heart's rhythm and electrical activity and the information is captured on a moving paper print-out or as a diagnostic wave pattern on a monitor.
The new machine is particularly small and therefore very mobile, enabling medical staff to carry the device Around the Medical Centre very easily, as and when required.
The purchase was made possible by the kind generosity of the Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust, which responded very positively to a request for financial assistance, on behalf of the Practice, by the Haddenham Medical Centre Patients' Participation Group (PPG).
The PPG was delighted when the Trust agreed to fund the entire sum (£1,955) and its management committee join with the Practice staff in extending their thanks to the Trustees.
The photograph shows PPG member and 200 Draw administrator, Bob Giles, handing the new ECG machine to Practice Manager Ellen Solley and Senior GP, Dr Mark Howcutt.
If you would like to know more about the PPG, please see here.
The next meeting of the PPG will be held on Wednesday 26th October, at 7.00pm in Haddenham Medical Centre. All patients registered with the Haddenham Practice are welcome.
