Friends of the Practice

Friends of The Practice

Stop Press November 2016 – The Friends Group is in danger of disbanding due to lack of volunteers – can you help? Why not come to the Friends Open Evening in January 2017 to find out more – book your place now with reception.

The Friends of the Practice meet informally every 3 months.
We aim to provide a voluntary service to the patients of The Quarter Jack Surgery.

Transport

We have a team of volunteers who may be able to help with transport to and from the surgery.
We can also sometimes help with hospital transport if given enough notice.
If you are having difficulty in attending appointments, please ask the surgery to pass on your details and we will contact you to offer any help available.
We do not charge for this service but request a donation towards fuel costs.

Befriending Service

Are you feeling lonely and isolated?
We may have a volunteer who can visit you and sit for a friendly chat.
If you are in need of a friend, please ask the surgery to pass on your details and we will contact you to offer any help available.

Bereavement Support

Have you recently been bereaved?
It sometimes helps to talk to someone who has been through the same feelings.
If you would like to talk to someone who understands, please ask the surgery to pass on your details and we will contact you to offer any help available.

Fundraising

We hold occasional events such as coffee mornings and raffles to raise funds for much needed equipment.

We have recently purchased the following for use in the surgery:

  • Examination light (Used in consultation rooms)
  • Doppler (measures blood supply)
  • Oximeters (measures oxygen in blood)

And we have contributed to the set-up cost of this interactive web-site.

Do you have a flair for fundraising?
