Welcome to the Friends of Wistaria Surgery
Working to benefit the health of patients and others in the community
The Friends of Wistaria Surgery, known as the Friends, was set up in 2003 by patients as an independent registered charity. Our purpose is to preserve and protect the healthcare of patients and the wider community. We raise funds to buy equipment and to provide support and services for the surgery that are outside the NHS budget and that directly benefit patients. We raise funds from membership fees, raffles and by organising social activities, and provide practical assistance to the surgery such as help with the annual influenza clinics and maintaining the surgery's gardens. We also provide local healthcare and surgery information to patients and the community in articles and items of interest in the News and Articles section of this website, and we provide a valuable service for those who are lonely or isolated through our Befrienders service.
