We have a surgery equipment fund aswell as a Carers group fund for all donations received, which is governed by some of our patients for the benefit of the practice.The money donated to the surgery fund is greatly appreciated as it enables us to buy equipment that would not normally be available for our surgery.

We try to buy equipment that will be of benefit to the wide range of our patients.

From donations received, the equipment fund is able to purchase the following types of equipment and services:

  • Portable oxygen for the Doctors’ cars
  • Replacement canisters for Cryotherapy
  • Spirometer machine
  • Oxygen saturation monitors for loaning to patients
  • Blood pressure monitors for loaning to patients
  • Financial help needed for our volunteers to visit our patients in our befriending scheme
  • Funding for carers group activities

Our sincere thanks to everyone who has helped us make these purchases and services possible.


If you would like to make a donation to the Medical Practice Equipment Fund or the Medical Practice Carers Group Fund then please either make a cheque payable to ‘Portcullis Surgery’ or we are happy to accept cash and coin collections and place it in an envelope marked for the attention of our Practice Manager Mrs Rachel Wilding specifying if your donation is a general fund donation or a specific donation for the carers group fund.

If you prefer you can make donations anonymously, otherwise please ensure we have the details of whom the donation is from (or on behalf of) as we always like to write and thank all who donate.
We will then pass your donation to the Treasurer of the Surgery Equipment Fund so they can contact and thankyou.
