The Patient Participation Group of Haddenham Medical Centre acts as a conduit for information flows between medical and support staff of the Practice and its patients. Members of the PPG hear about changes being made at a primary healthcare level and are able to offer direct feedback from the patients' perspective.
As well as liaising with the GPs, nurses and support staff, the PPG raises money to help the Haddenham Practice purchase equipment that it would otherwise struggle to afford and that is not available through NHS funding.
The main fundraising efforts take the form of the 200 Club, and occasional coffee mornings, thanks in particular to the specific efforts of Lesley Coles and Di Franklin. You can find out more about the 200 Club here.
Funds raised by the 200 Club, together with a generous personal donation by Haddenham resident, Mrs Yvonne Pringle, has now enabled Haddenham Medical Centre to purchase a 'Dopplex' machine for assisting speedy diagnosis of peripheral vascular disease in patients who may be susceptible to developing leg ulcers.
The process is normally a very lengthy procedure that takes up a lot of nursing time. The new machine will speed up the necessary measurements, to arrive at what is technically known as the 'Ankle Brachial Pressure Index', and thus free up valuable nursing time to allow them to carry out other activities to the benefit of a wider group of patients.
The main photograph shows Haddenham GPs, Dr, Kaiser Munir and Dr Mark Howcutt receiving a cheque for £2903 from PPG Vice Chairman Barry Lynch and 200 Club Champion Lesley Coles.
The PPG and the Practice extends a very big 'thank you' to all who have contributed to the 200 Club Draw so far, and to Mrs Pringle, and special thanks to our team of fund raisers Lesley Coles, Di Franklin and Bob Coles for all their hard work.
