Blood Pressure Machines for Patient Monitoring

After consultation with our Patient Participation Group we would like to purchase a couple of Blood Pressure machines to loan out to patients who need to check their blood pressure at home for a specific amount of days, as requested by the GP. This will help with the diagnosis of Hypertension etc.... The Blood Pressure machines would be available for patients to “loan” for a week so they can monitor their B/P at home so the GP’s can use this information regarding their future care, and possibly negate the need for a referral to hospital. The machines would be available to all patients. We do have B/P machines in the surgery but these are used by the clinicians so cannot leave the practice.

Request for Portable Projector

We would love a portable projector to enhance training that we provide to staff teams, families and homes out in the community. A team projector would also support us to go paperless in our PDG meetings and increase scope of shared learning through online resources, powerpoints and visual aids.

Refreshments for Structured Education for Diabetes Course

I am looking for some help to support our patients who will be taking part in structured education for diabetes. These are full day courses and unfortunately we have no petty cash to provide them with refreshments. I am enquiring as to whether this is something that you can help us with? Thank you

Dinning with Dignity

I am looking into funding for a training session for cooks in 24 hour care facilities. Part of the session plans to involve a chef in the private sector who specialises in diet modification for those with dysphagia (swallowing difficulties). For him to attend the session would be approximately £700.

TV for presentation to update Beverley Health Centre

I would like to propose that we have an update of our patient waiting area in Beverley to include a community information point to enhance the patient experience. We feel this would make the area more welcoming and informative.
