Is our 2018 ‘TELL US WHAT YOU NEED’
Community Initiative the first of its kind in the UK
TELL US WHAT YOU NEED
Three years ago, Medi Tech Trust organised a series of seminars for members of the public as part of a ‘Healthcare in the Community’ project. Amongst others, fourteen Eastbourne surgeries displayed leaflets advertising those seminars, for which we were most grateful.
Our charity knows that more and more minor surgical procedures are being carried out at surgery level rather than referring patients to the local hospital. To express our gratitude for their past cooperation, in March 2018, Medi Tech Trust launched a new Community Initiative, which may be the first of its kind in the UK.
Doctors from these Eastbourne surgeries have been invited to submit a wish list of one to three items of medical equipment that they feel would greatly benefit their patients or would assist the doctors and their nursing staff in carrying out such procedures more effectively.
Through ongoing fundraising efforts, our charity aims to donate equipment worth £5,000 to each participating Eastbourne surgery.
Each surgery has been asked to provide details of the item or items that would best help to improve the procedures it provides, or could provide, for their patients. Once these wish lists have been received, a small panel of medical experts will verify that these items will genuinely be of benefit to Eastbourne’s residents.
