In 2015 Lime Tree Surgery Patients’ Group celebrated 25 years of consistent activity in providing Health Awareness and fundraising events, receiving donations, and maintaining a direct involvement of local health developments that could impact on Primary Care services.
We ensure that where funds are used for the purchase of medical equipment or services, the provision is local for the benefit of the Surgery’s patients, and we do not ‘subsidise’ funds that would normally be sourced through NHS channels.
The Patients’ Group is a Registered Charity, no. 1053830.
We have a managing committee that meets four times each year, and a public Annual General Meeting, held in May to which all patients are welcome. It is advertised in advance.
All patients of Lime Tree Surgery are automatically members of the Patients’ Group, there is no formal membership register.
