Irrespective of one's political persuasions, few members of the general public can be in any doubt that the NHS is now struggling to meet ever-increasing demand with inadequate resources.
Many local residents reading this will be registered with Haddenham Medical Centre. It has a very active Patients' Participation Group (PPG) which provides a conduit for close communication with medical and support staff and provides practical help and assistance on a voluntary basis.
One of the aims of the Haddenham Medical Centre PPG is to help raise funds for equipment that the Practice would otherwise struggle to afford — indeed, under tight economic pressures, such equipment would be unjustifiable despite the direct benefits provided to patients and staff.
The primary mechanism by which the Haddenham Medical Centre PPG raises funds is the 200 Club.
In 2015 the PPG 200 Club draw, together with some generous individual donations, raised over £5,000 and was able to fund the purchase of two pieces of very useful equipment for the Haddenham Practice: a Dopplex machine for checking circulation in the arms and legs to identify peripheral artery disease; and a Dermatoscope to aid diagnosis of skin lesions.
In 2016 the PPG is looking to raise enough money to buy the following additional equipment to improve facilities at the Medical Centre:
1. A New ECG machine
2. An Air Conditioning unit for the Minor Operations Room
3. A second TV monitor in reception to improve information display
We need to raise another £5,000 to fund these items. Please help us by joining PPG 200 Club 2016 or renewing your existing membership for 2016
