The G.B Britton Bowls Club in Speedwell had recently been fund raising to purchase a brand new defibrillator for the club. When BrisDoc heard about this, we decided to donate a defibrillator via the community fund to support the club, its members and the local community.

This years BrisDoc Dog show was a great success with 13 dogs and about 30 of their human friends came along.
Members of the BrisDoc Acute GP Team participated in various events last month to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. The team were raising money in memory of an esteemed colleague Dr David Farrar who sadly passed away last year from myocarditis. The Team have managed to raise over £500 so far and there is still time to make a last minute donation via the teams JustGiving page.
Team Belinda, made up of Danielle Townsend, Liz Turner, Jess Turner and Phil Clarke all successfully completed the Bristol Half Marathon yesterday in memory of Belinda Clarke who passed away in February this year after sadly losing her battle to cancer. The team would like to share a HUGE THANK YOU for all the donations and words of encouragement.
BrisDoc's Community Fund have just approved further financial support to Wellspring to enable them to open the ground floor of the new Health Clinic and move from the current location. The current facilities that the team are working in are very cramped with just two consulting rooms (without wash basins), a corridor which doubles as a treatment room and a small bedded area at the rear of the building.
Team Belinda: Danielle Townsend, Liz Turner, Jess Turner and Phil Clarke are running in memory of Belinda Clarke who passed away in February this year after sadly losing her battle to cancer. We are a team of family and close friends of Belinda who enjoy running, like Belinda did too and couldn’t think of a better way to raise some money for charity.
Members of staff from across all our services come together this month to discuss all things healthcare, health & wellbeing and how we can make BrisDoc a fantastic place to work.
A huge WELL DONE & THANK YOU to our marvellous Dragon Boat team who did a fantastic job, taking part in this years Dragon Boat Festival!
This month we had a visit from two of the project leaders, Dr. Mike Godward and Mrs Beryl Godwood, who gave us an update on the progress of the project.
