2018 AGM Report

Posted on May 17, 2018 at 11:11 AM Comments comments (0)
FROTH had its AGM on May 16th at Townlands Hospital, and we had a good turn out. The minutes were agreed, the reports accepted and the Accounts passed. We also had a very illuminating talk from Dr Antoni Chan the Consultant Rheumatologist from The Royal Berks, who kindly gave us a review of the current activities carried out by local and RBS staff. He also shared with us the overall plan, equipment and staff permitting, of trying to treat Henley and District patients at Townlands for an increasing number of specialities, overseen by Consultants from The Royal Berks. It is becoming clear that the way forward for the charity is to raise funds for equipment for exclusive use at Townlands, removing the need for more and more patients to travel to Reading for treatment. Our purchase of the Bladder Scanner was an example of where the charity can make a difference. Dr Chan speculated that if he could get the most advanced Portable Ultrasound Machine into Townlands, he would treat a much larger number of Rheumatology patients locally. It seems likely that other Consultants would have the same opinion.  This will be discussed by the Committee.
