A group of GPs in Hertfordshire have raised money to support carers in nursing homes across the county including homes in Abbots Langley and Watford.
At the end of last week, some GPS went to selected nursing homes including Arden House in Abbots Langley and Rosslyn Court in Watford.
Afro GP Herts picked 14 homes across Hertfordshire and two GPs volunteered to visit the homes to give them essential items and recognise the efforts of staff.
Each of these care homes have been presented with 30 loaves of bread, 120 eggs, a minimum of 25 pastas per home, a big box of assorted fruits including, grapes, apples, bananas, pears and oranges and two boxes of plantain chips.
An Afro GP spokesman said: “This gesture has been met with a great deal of gratitude from the care homes visited and the doctors involved are very happy that they have been able to impact some lives and put a smile on a weary face.”
Afro GP Herts is an educational forum for GPs of African descent working and or living in Hertfordshire. At present the group has 75 members and some who have joined from neighbouring Bedfordshire.
