The Surgery’s performance

“As I’m sure you know there has been quite a lot of criticism over the past months of local surgeries failing to serve their patients properly and in particular not providing enough face to face appointments. Chiddingfold Surgery has not been immune to this and many of the allegations seem to be based on mischievous rumour mongering. I am aware that one or two neighbouring surgeries have been failing to give a satisfactory service; however, as Friends of the Chiddingfold Surgery, we are naturally concerned that we are being tarred with the same brush and have discussed it with Dr Watts. From what he has told us, and the statistics he has given us, we are quite sure that Chiddingfold Surgery has been working very hard within the restrictions imposed by Covid and have provided the best service possible. I won’t give any more facts here about what the Surgery has achieved at this difficult time but please contact me at fcs@chidders.co.uk if you would like to have further details.”

Simon Inchbald, Chairman of the Friends.

NEW EQUIPMENT TO SPEED UP ASSESSMENT OF PATIENTS

Friends of Chiddingfold Surgery are delighted to announce that they have been able to donate funds to enable the doctors to purchase an ECG machine and two AMBPs (24-hour blood pressure monitors).

Before Covid 19 the doctors were able to lend the existing machines to five to seven people in a week; but now it’s only a couple of people as due to regulations the machines cannot be used again for 72 hours following sanitisation. The cost of these three new machines is just over £4,000 and will make a big difference allowing more patients to be assessed quickly.
