Sue Woods , Nurse and resident cake maker at the Bedwyn surgery made two fabulous cakes to  mark the occasion, and with a supply of other sweet and savoury offerings everyone felt suitably refreshed and nourished by the end of the afternoon.

Perfect cakes with which to celebrate the NHS birthday......Perfect cakes with which to celebrate the NHS birthday..................and then to eat!............and then to eat!Bathed in glorious sunshine everyone mingled and chatted on the surgery lawn having a great time, taking in the delights of the transformed borders of the garden from overgrown jungle to a palete of colour with roses, begonias, and also the community herb garden establishing itself, all thanks to the Octagenarian Gardner Eric Bailey, who has made the surgery gardens his pet project over the last seven to eight months.  The surgery recognised all his hard work by gifting him a granite plaque which will take pride of place in the garden.

Some of the equipment used over the years of the NHS, loaned to Bedwyn by Savernake Hospital on show in the Treatment Room.  Thankfully times have changed.....Some of the equipment used over the years of the NHS, loaned to Bedwyn by Savernake Hospital on show in the Treatment Room. Thankfully times have changed.....The Friends of Savernake Hospital also helped out by loaning some of the Savernake Hospital artefacts that they hold, which patients found most interesting.  These were displayed  in the surgery  treatment room alongside some of the much more modern equipment that the surgery now uses.

Patients were very generous, making voluntary contributions for tea and cake, and £85 was raised in just a couple of hours for Alzheimers Support.
