DID YOU KNOW ?

 

In the UK there is a shortage of Doctors resulting in many practices, such as some  in Maldon, having to close their books and unable to take on any new patients ?. As reported by John Whittingdale at Bicknacre & Woodham Ferrers  APM on 11th May 2018.

Whereas, in Bicknacre, we are very fortunate to have the type of Doctors Surgery we do.

A practice with a personal service, the type where you know you are going to see the Doctor of your choice. The type of personal service where your Doctor knows you, not just your records. A practice, that actively aims to improve its service for your benefit and new patients alike.

“Speaking personally, I feel it’s comforting and reassuring to feel like a valued patient, not just a number in the system”… Sandy Sinclair

Did you also know, that many practices that would like to offer services, which they know would be of benefit to their patients health, are not able to access the funds needed through the NHS, to provide them ?

Therefore, It is up to the Doctor to raise the necessary funds through other methods and that’s not always possible to do so for a variety of reasons.

Again, we here in Bicknacre and nearby, are fortunate to have a Doctor who  sees this, but still wishes to provide such benefits. Such as a wearable heart / blood pressure monitoring machine. A piece of equipment which can be worn by a patient over several days. This can then monitor blood pressure during the course of varying activities. It will provide valuable data with a greater and accurate diagnosis of a person’s health and therefore, their ultimate health needs.

However, first, funds need to be raised to provide this valuable piece of equipment, which will be held and available at Wyncroft Surgery, for OUR benefit.

Bicknacre Village Hall has for the past five years, held a Charity Coffee Morning in support of local needs.

Last year our wonderful Coffee Morning, in aid of First Responders, was yet  another great success. It was so well supported and undeniably enjoyable.

Altogether, with the help of Peter at The Brewers Arms, raised over £600.00 to assist in the purchase of 2 defibrillators for Bicknacre and Woodham Ferrers.

Sufficient money was raised to enable Karen Kuderovitch, our Parish Clerk, to apply for Sponsorship funding to provide the balance needed. Now we are pleased to see both defibrillators are installed. One, is positioned on the outside of Bicknacre Village Hall and the second, outside Woodham Ferrers School Room & Chapel.

This year Bicknacre Village Hall Committee are proud to support Dr Sai Sanka and Wyncroft Surgery to help raise funds for a  wearable Heart/Blood Pressure monitoring machine, for the benefits of our residents.

Come along on 21st September to enjoy a fabulous morning, with tea and home made cakes, local crafts stalls and a raffle, all underpinned by laughter, chatter and good will

Make a note in your diary….Friday 21st September  11.00 – 1.30 pm ..We look forward to seeing you there.
