The Romney Marsh Day Centre successfully piloted a telehealth project for people living on the marsh thanks to a KCC members grant of £2,415 from Carole Waters.
The project helped Meg, a local resident and volunteer at the centre, when she had various health issues and found it hard to get an appointment to see her doctor.
She was able to come along to the centre which provided a safe and comfortable environment with support when she needed it.
“The service was very informative. I received good advice and it was just like being sat with the doctor. It was a huge help for me and put my mind at rest,” said Meg.
RMDC hope to continue the project now the pilot has finished and are making links with the local secondary school and local health professionals to ensure the maximum amount of people can benefit.
“This service is vital for the people of the Marsh especially with increased demand on GP appointments and issues with transport for those living locally,” said Carole Waters, KCC member for Romney Marsh.
