Letters, calls and emails: A productive end for our old instruments

Dear Editor

With the new rules on sterilisation, many GPs will have redundant surgical instruments and sterilisation facilities which will need disposing of.

Could I appeal to them to spend a few minutes searching out their local third-world charity and asking them if they wish to donate this equipment?

Certainly the charity I contacted was more than delighted with the donation of both surgical instruments and a recently serviced Little Sister, which are now redundant in general practice in the UK.
