Patient's Medical Equipment Fund (PMEF)

PMEF Who We Are And What We Do

The PMEF was established in 1986 and during that time the surgery has increased its numbers from supporting 10 to 20 villages with 1500 patients to 70 to 80 villages and 6000 patients at the current time.

There are five Trustees who run the PMEF they are:

  • Graham Eames - Chairman
  • Jan Watkin - Vice Chair
  • Clare Lawie - Treasurer
  • Von Coupland - Secretary
  • Elizabeth Walters - Trustee

All monies raised throughout the year goes towards equipment to relieve persons in need of medical attention within the beneficial area served by the Billingborough Medical Practice, by providing medical equipment on loan or other facilities not normally available from the District Health Authority as well as maintaining and repairing or replacing such equipment as necessary.

All equipment purchased remains the property of the PMEF.

The aim of the PMEF is to provide the equipment for people who are unable to access the surgery but do not require hospitalisation, although it can also be used within the surgery.

Our main event every year is a Christmas Coffee Morning held at the surgery, this alone raises around £1700. We held a Burns Night in January 2013, this was the first time we arranged something like this and it was very successful and the PMEF coffers were well replenished.

The Trustees also have a team of volunteers who are our helpers committee, they work hard to raise funds and give a lot of their time. They are a very important part of our fundraising committee they are :

Paul & Wendy May, Graham Walker,  Mike & Joan Taylor, Debbie Eames, Christine Espinosa, Claire Beech, Roy Payne, Michael Cooper and Pam Eade.
