Friends of the Surgery

The Friends of Bow Surgery

The Friends of Bow Surgery are a group of people who raise funds to purchase additional equipment for the benefit of patients of the Practice. We are very grateful for their efforts and hope all patients will support them. 

Supporting the Surgery

Through the efforts of the group, the Practice has been able to purchase essential equipment such as a well-equipped resuscitation trolley, portable oxygen appliances for use by the clinical team within the community, blood pressure monitors to loan to patients for home monitoring and more recently the wonderful chairs and children's play furniture within the waiting room.

New Members

The group continue to seek new members, not only to assist with fund raising activities but also to assist the key group members to assess where funds are best committed.

If you are able to help or have a suggestion, please leave your details with the receptionists.
