Equipment Fund

    Updated 31st January 2018

We have a surgery equipment fund for all donations received, which is run by some of our patients for the benefit of the practice.

The money donated to the Surgery Fund by patients, friends and families is greatly appreciated by everyone at the surgery, as it enables us to buy equipment that would not, in the normal way, be available to a small surgery.

We try to buy equipment that will be of benefit to a wide range of patients, young and old, and we also include items which can be used by the nurses and midwife’s out in the community.

FROM DONATIONS RECEIVED, SHAP SURGERY EQUIPMENT FUND HAS PURCHASED THE FOLLOWING EQUIPMENT DURING 2016/2017:

• A device to help nurses check inhaler techniques with patients
• Elephant feet – to raise the height of some chairs in the waiting room for better ease and access.
• 50% contribution to new flooring in Orton Branch Surgery (as requested by CQC)
• A device called ‘Kardia Mobile’ which can be attached to a mobile phone and will record an ECG at the time of a cardiac arrhythmia
• Fan for waiting room to help cool it down in summer
• Repairs to our syringe driver (used to provide medication to palliative patients)
• New cuffs for blood pressure machines
• New baby thermometer
• Glove box holder in minor operations room
• New pulse oximeter
• New Ear Irrigator (for ear syringing)
