Patient's Medical Equipment Fund (PMEF)
Registered Charity No 517720
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
- Christine Espinosa - Vice Chair
- Clare Lawie - Treasurer
- Von Coupland - Secretary
- Karl Brown - 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/Care Fair held at the Village Hall, this alone raises around £1700.
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.
Anyone who wishes to make a donation to the Medical Equipment Fund should make their cheque payable to The Springwells Medical Equipment Fund, and send it to the surgery who will forward it to the Trustees of the fund.
