ALMA ROAD SURGERY CHARITABLE TRUST

WANTED

A TREASURER TO JOIN THE TRUSTEES

The job of Treasurer is a vital but far from onerous one, equating to something like 4 hours work per year! Basically you will be signing the cheques and keeping a close eye on the finances, but the actual accounts are prepared by the surgery.Once a year you will have to make a simple return on-line to the Charities Commission.The Trustees usually meet, briefly, every quarter.

IF YOU CAN HELP US PLEASE HAVE A WORD WITH THE PRACTICE MANAGER

 

Alma Road Surgery Charitable Trust

The Charitable Trust was formally established in 1987 in order to administer funds donated by supporters of the Alma Road Surgery by purchasing equipment, facilities and services, not normally provided by the statutory authorities but which will directly improve the patient experience.

Its brief has recently been extended to cover support for talks on healthcare and developments at the Practice as well as the publication of newsletters.

Some of these provisions in recent years have been:

Take-home nebulisers to help asthma sufferers when their usual inhalers are deemed insufficient

The blood-pressure monitor in the waiting room

Take-home 24-hour heart and blood pressure monitors

Diabetes monitoring equipment

In-surgery warfarin testing kits

Chair-raisers to assist elderly patients in rising from waiting room chairs

Pulse-oximeters (clipped on finger to show oxygen levels & pulse rate)

Children’s play cube (to keep the younger patients busy...and quiet!)

Drinking water supply in the waiting room

Reprinting of repeat medication cards

Extra parking spaces in the redesigned car park

The current trustees are:

Mike Bull (Chairman)                         Catherine Cox

Ian McCallion (Secretary)                   Peter Mesher (Treasurer)          

Jane Heyer                                           Lis Lindesay

Lyn Bonner                                         Gill Scarratt

They meet every quarter at the surgery, with Mary Orgill (Practice Manager) and a GP representing the Practice. From time to time they organise fund-raising events, such as the tombola at the Flu Clinic.

A leaflet encouraging patients to make a bequest to the Trust in their Will is available at the surgery.
