Patients and staff at Windrush Surgery have raised funds to provide the first community defibrillator in West Bar Street.

Staff, who held book and cake sale and took donations at clinics, were overwhelmed by people’s generosity, including one whose daughter had been a patient, who made a substantial donation to enable the defibrillator to be bought and installed.

Senior partner Dr Wignell said: “This important addition to the network of community defibrillators is only possible because staff themselves took the initiative to raise the money. The partners are very proud of them.”
