Why?

We have set up this charitable trust to enhance the services available at Minchinhampton Surgery.   Our vision is to integrate top quality NHS general practice with the best available complementary and physical therapies, all under one roof.   Why travel to Stroud for physiotherapy when you could have it at the surgery in a purpose built gym and rehabilitation centre? We would like Chiropractic treatment, acupuncture and art therapy all available in the surgery.      

Who?

The trustees of the charity are made up of patients and GPs.  We have regular trustee meetings and have a registered Trust Deed that is available on request.  If you would like to get involved with the Trust please let us know.

What next?

We would like to build a new surgery in Minchinhampton to replace the present surgery at Bell Lane. We have no space to expand at Bell Lane, barely any parking and inadequate facilities for the disabled.    A new surgery will be financed by the NHS but is an opportunity to add in new facilities and services that could be funded by the Trust. 

A Healthy Living Centre

We want to promote health rather than just treat disease and have a vision to set up a Healthy Living Centre.   This will allow us to promote good health as well as rehabilitating ill people.   Your donation will really make a difference.

What do you want?

What new services would you like to see at Minchinhampton Surgery?   Please let us know what you would like in the new surgery.   This is an opportunity to start new services and to try to move existing NHS services that at present are only available in Stroud or Gloucester to the new surgery.  Please write to Dr Andy Simpson at the surgery or email trust@minchinhampton.org

Why donate to the Trust?

The Trust will use the money donated to build the additional “trust wing” of the new surgery and then to run the additional services in the new surgery.  Minchinhampton is a wonderful place to live and deserves the best 21st Century Surgery.

How to donate?

Please make cheques payable to Minchinhampton Surgery Charitable Trust.  We would like to apply for GIFT Aid on donations, the Gift Aid forms can be collected from the surgery reception.   Alternatively just click on the button to donate online:
