A message from the Chairman:
The League of Friends was formed in 1989, with the aim of providing better facilities and equipment for the patients of both surgeries. It is run by a committee comprising patients of Rotherfield and Jarvis Brook surgeries. Since 1989 we have bought many items of equipment identified by the doctors as beneficial to patient care.
In the last 10 years alone, money raised through various fund raising efforts has provided essential medical equipment costing over £30,000 including defibrillators, blood pressure monitors, blood analysers, ear syringing kits and anti-coagulation monitors. As well as new purchases the money covers the cost of maintaining and operating existing equipment at both surgeries.
In addition to fundraising, the committee works to raise the profile of the Friends and always needs new helpers. If you would like to become a committee member or simply to man a stall at an event, we would welcome you with open arms! It could be a way of making new friends as well as becoming involved in a really worthwhile cause. If you can help, please contact me on 01892 852645, or leave your name and telephone number with the receptionist at the surgery.
Even if you are not able to become actively involved, perhaps you could consider joining the League of Friends (single annual membership is a minimum of £5, and £8 for families) and contribute to its funds. There are membership forms in the waiting room of both surgeries or you can click here to download one.
Thank you for your support, and we look forward to meeting you!
