Background To The Charity
In 1997, Dr Newman, Sir Alec Bedser, Mr Eric Bedser and Lord lane of Horsell set up the Hillview Surgery Charitable Trust, following the many requests from patients to give donations for medical equipment to aid patient care and services.
The Charity initially received a large donation from Sir Alec Bedser and Mr Eric Bedser and ever since has received smaller donations from Patients and sponsorship from charity events such as the ‘ 10 Hills in 10 Hours Challenge’, the ‘Thames Towpath Walk’, and the ‘North Downs Way Walk’.
The Hillview Surgery Charitable Trust helps to provide facilities and services for patients at Hillview Medical Centre in Woking. The Charity has supported the 15,000 patients of Hillview Surgery by refurbishing the building and providing equipment that both reduces the need to travel to a hospital for tests and treatment, and overall patient waiting times. Over the last five years the financial support given by the charity equates to £25 per patient.
The Charity is currently overseen by the Trustees; Dee Wilkinson, Andrew Freeman and Dr Peter Smith. The Charity is separate to the practice and the Trustees ensure that funds are used to provide additional services, equipment, and experience that the NHS cannot provide.
For many years until his death – Keith Smith was an invaluable trustee for the charity. Keith put lots of his time into supporting the Charity and was always a positive and enthusiastic participant. We will all miss him.
