The Lindsay Leg Club Foundation and the Mottingham Leg Club, Bromley, London

A social model of healthcare; members not patients; nurses and volunteers working together; a smile and a chat; plenty of coffee, tea, biscuits and homemade muffins; approachable nurses; solutions not chronic problems. What does all of this mean? I first became aware of the Lindsay Leg Club Foundation while attending an awards lunch in Staffordshire. From across a crowded room, Ellie Lindsay was pointed out to me. We may have only spoken briefly, but this was the beginning of our working friendship. Gradually over the next few years, we met more and more often. I visited the Mablethorpe Leg Club in Lincolnshire and started attending the Leg Club annual conference dinners, Medical Technology Group meetings and All Party Parliamentary Group sessions. Eventually I became a Friend of the Foundation, which meant that I had a formal association and the desire to further the objectives of the Leg Club model.
