As everyone recognises, the NHS is currently struggling to provide adequate resources to satisfy growing levels of patient demand.
In order to assist in the provision of good service levels at a primary care level, members of the local Patient Participation Group (PPG) run the 200 Club Lottery — a prize draw that raises funds for the purchase of medical equipment or patient-related items that the Haddenham Medical Centre could not otherwise afford to purchase.
In 2017, for example, the PPG 200 Club draw raised £2,015 allowing for the purchase, on behalf of the Medical Centre, a projection system for the Health Training Room (for use in public information workshops and support group presentations, as well as staff training) and additional High-Backed Armchairs for use by less mobile patients as they wait in reception.
This year the PPG intends to purchase the following additional equipment:
- A Paediatric SATS monitor (to monitor blood oxygenation levels in infants)
- Blood Pressure Monitors for patients' use at home
- Additional High Backed Armchairs for reception
Please help by joining the PPG 200 Club 2018 (or by renewing your existing membership for 2018.)
