Gresleydale Healthcare Centre – A big thank you

Gresleydale Healthcare Centre would like to thank the Patient Participation Group (PPG) for their wonderful fund-raising efforts.  We are delighted to report that these new funds have enabled us to purchase a new set of chairs for the reception area. New chairs were urgently needed to ensure that  the new social distancing laws are met.

Gresleydale Healthcare Centre would also like to thank patients, the local community and local businesses and sole traders for all their kind donations and support.  We have been provided with urgent equipment and supplies that were much needed for the fight against COVID-19.

To date we have received the following :

Clinician scrubs and wash bags; face masks, face visors, safety kits, refreshment supplies (including water bottles) and not forgetting the gorgeous homemade bottle lights to lighten up our day.  Also gratefully received were many handmade sewn/knitted items to ensure that our clinician’s PPE fits securely whilst maintaining comfort.

Please, please keep donations coming in as  they are greatly appreciated – our practice clinicians are also working at the Red Hub (Swadlincote Bus Station) and at the Green Hub (in Overseal) plus local need is enormous and we are happy to share what we have with our local colleagues when we work from other sites.

Thank you again – all your efforts are significantly appreciated.
