We provide medical equipment and support to the Caythorpe & Ancaster Medical practice which looks after over 9,000 patients covering 52 villages and hamlets in rural Lincolnshire.
The main reason the charity was established is for patients to recognise and support the efforts and contribution that the medical practice, rated 'Outstanding' by the Care Quality Commission, is making in the local community.
Making a difference
The trust was set up as a charity in 1990 - registration 1000579. The object of the trust is “to relieve sickness within the area served by the medical practice". We provide medical equipment or other facilities not normally provided by the National Health Service. This enables early diagnosis and treatment and enables patients to be treated speedily and without the need to visit an NHS hospital.
What we do
We recognize the pressure that the NHS is under and work with our medical practice to help it to improve its service to the local patient community. If you can make a financial contribution to this worthy cause then please donate.
Already in 2017 we have provided the practice with a new van to deliver prescriptions to patients, new ECG equipment, new spirometers and blood pressure monitors.
We have placed collection boxes around the community and will be holding a Grand Draw later in the year.
