Chilcote Care provide patient transport at a reasonable cost to and from the surgeries and the local hospitals including Derriford and RD&E. This is for patients who have limited mobility. Unfortunately they cannot transport patients who are solely dependent on a wheelchair, but folding frames are acceptable. This can be booked through the surgery.
We are pleased to inform you that we have recently been able to provide a handheld spirometer for the Specialist Nurse (this measures lung function), and have also funded the installation of a water fountain for the surgery at Chatto Road.
On August 28th, pictured above can be seen our Chairman, John Hart, in the presence of Dr Young, Sue Finch (Practice Manager), Nurse Practitioner Julia and a number of our committee presenting two items recently purchased from our funds.
Firstly to Julia an up to date Doppler (measures the circulation to the lower limbs) which takes a fraction of the time to give results compared to the old one.
Secondly a Fax/Copier/Scanner for use in the Reception Office at the Chatto Road site.
