NEW FACES AT THE SURGERY
DR JENNIFER DUGGAL
ALTHOUGH I have just started in a new post at Fordingbridge
surgery, some of you may already have come across me with a
different hat on!
I have worked in the practice for a number of years initially as an
occasional locum as well as long term locums for Dr Dingley and
Dr Morris. I know the practice well and am delighted to have the
opportunity to be a part of the team
Qualifying from Cardiff (then known as the Welsh National School
of Medicine) in 1984 I finished my GP training in 1988.
I became a partner in two practices in South Wales before mov-
ing to Vancouver for a year, following my husband's career. Kush
became a consultant anaesthetist at Salisbury District Hospital in
1997 and some of you may well have met him (although may not remember him, as patients
rarely remember their anaesthetist!).
Since 1997, I have worked at several practices in and around Salisbury.
We have three children, now (mostly) grown up, age 22, 20 and 17. I enjoy golf, skiing and tennis
and hate cooking!
I am delighted to be working at the Fordingbridge Surgery.A Nurse Practitioner for seven years, I have spent much of
that time working in Southampton. I live in Salisbury and have three children. My eldest is mar-ried, living in Wales and about to have her first child. My old-est son marries later this year. My youngest, who is still athome, is a keen rugby player and I enjoy watching him play.
Also I love to cook and am currently enjoying renovating myold house.
IN the past most patients with problems
needing attention on the same day were
offered an appointment with a doctor or
nurse. This led to increased waiting times for
routine appointments as many slots were
saved for urgent problems.
Fordingbridge Surgery is now managing the
urgent problems more effectively and has
increased the number of routine appoint-
ments and reduced the waiting times. Now
when you speak to a doctor or nurse practi-
tioner on the telephone you will be offered
either an appointment with the person who
can most effectively deal with your problem,
or an alternative option. This will give you
more choices of how your problem may best
be dealt with.
The Same Day Service is designed to be
more safer and more efficient in dealing with
patients urgent problems.
The telephone number to call is 01425
653430 and lines are open from 8am.
Appointments system changed
I moved to Fordingbridge from Poole with my
husband, Jack almost eight years ago, conse-
quently I took retirement two-and-a-half years
ago. A nurse for 45 years, I did my training in
Yorkshire and then left my roots to live and
work in Harrow, as well as other areas of the
country. I led a varied nursing career and on
retirement I had a been a Heart Failure
Specialist Nurse working for Bournemouth and
Poole Primary Care Trust, and working closely
with the British Heart Foundation.
Since retiring life has become quite busy and
taken on a different role from my hectic nursing
career. I mainly do voluntary work within
Fordingbridge and for the local community
doing such things as helping at the Rae
Stratton Luncheon Club and the Day Centre,
also working for Age UK on the ASSYST
A friend of the Victoria Rooms I help with fund
raising to keep that beautiful building alive. I
take an active role backstage for the
Fordingbridge Players, and sometimes get the
opportunity to act! I work with Southampton
Hospital as a simulated patient, which involves
acting scenarios to assist medical and nursing
students during their training.
I am delighted to have been nominated as a
Trustee of the Friends of Fordingbridge Surgery
and I look forward to working alongside the
other committee members and the FOFS.
As a FOFS and Trustee it would be much
appreciated if any other friends would be
prepared to volunteer their services and exper-
tise in promoting and helping at fund-raising
events. My contact number is 01425 653878.

FOR those who were unable to attend the annualmeeting of the Friends of Fordingbridge Surgeryon Monday, March 12 this is what the acting chair-
man of the trustees, Mr Martin Calver had to say.Good evening and welcome to you all, and a particular
welcome to Brigadier John Hickman, chairman of the
newly-formed Patient Participation Group.
It hardly seems possible that it is now more than ten
years since the formation of the Friends of Fordingbridge
Surgery, and exactly ten years sine we were granted
charitable status. Much has happened during this time,
and I am pleased to report that the charity is looking for-
ward to the next ten years in good shape.
2011 was an active year with much to discuss and deal
with. The Executive Committee (which consists of nine
trustees) has met six times during the year and issued
two newsletters. During that time we have discussed a
variety of issues, including:
The potential new surgery premises in Alderholt
The development of the Patient Participation Group
The recently-introduced Same Day Service
The changes within the NHS from the reform bill current-
ly going through Parliament, and the impact on the
surgery and its patients
Fundraising in general, and the Car Park Appeal in par-
Changes to the constituents of the Executive Committee
The purchase of equipment requested by the surgery
While not all of these required specific action from the
Friends, it is important to understand that the Executive
Committee keeps itself fully informed about all activity
which may have an impact on the Practices patients.
In August 2011 the chairman, Mike Shand, announced
his retirement from this role and asked to stand down as
soon as was practical. It was agreed by the Executive
Committee that I would become acting chairman until
this AGM. I would like to publicly record the Trustees
heartfelt thanks for all the hard work Mike has put into
his role as chairman over a number of years. His local
government experience and large network of contacts
were invaluable in supporting our activities. He was, of
