Trustees of SALV

As you know, the NHS is underfunded and cannot provide all the facilities we need. However, a little help from SALV can make a considerable difference for us all.

Here are some examples of how SALV has benefited the local community:

  • Slit lens microscope (for eye examinations)

  • 24 hour Blood Pressure Monitors

  • Examination couches 

  • Dermatoscopes (skin microscopes)

  • Surgical lighting

  • ECG machines (for making heart tracings)

  • Mental Health Initiatives (offering counselling and local diagnoses)

  • Back up generator (to keep the surgery going during power

  • Ultrasound scanner​

Why do we need SALV?

  • New SALV developments are reported in the local parish magazines and two open evenings are held annually - in Spring and in Autumn

  • During these, specialist speakers address topical medical subjects. Past talks have covered childhood allergies, depression, strokes, obesity and nutrition and many more.

Open Evenings

​Each Village has a SALV representative to helps to provide a channel of communication with the trustees and the doctors
