Rotary provides wheels to Aberfeldy Surgery

Aberfeldy and Rannoch Medical Practice has just taken possession of a ‘one stop shop’ emergency trolley thanks to the continuing fundraising efforts of the Aberfeldy Rotary Club.

The trolley provides ease of access, speed and efficiency in caring for the seriously unwell as it provides a streamlined means of equipment storage and facilitates efficient maintenance, checking and replacement of essential equipment.

Doctor Vicki Cox on behalf of the Practice was delighted to accept the emergency trolley stating that in the event of any medical emergency anywhere within the practice, equipment such as the defibrillation machine, oxygen with masks and airway management, emergency cardiac monitor and resuscitation medication can all be safely and speedily brought to the patient.

Aberfeldy Rotary President Eric Slorance said that working with and for the community was an intrinsic part of what Rotary was about. Aberfeldy Rotary’s main fundraising event of the year is their Highland Perthshire Marathon and Cycle Sportive held each September and Doctor Cox personally provides free essential medical coverage throughout the event.The trolley cost in excess of £1000 and Mr. Slorance stated that it would be money well spent in helping the Aberfeldy and district community as well as visitors to the area in an emergency situation.
