AFTER A YEAR AND A HALF OF CAMPAIGNING, FAVERSHAM MINOR INJURIES UNIT IS TO REMAIN OPEN AND OFFER X-RAYS!
The NHS Canterbury and Coastal Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has awarded a contract to Faversham Medical Practice, effective from the end of August 2015.
The unit will be equipped to provide an X-ray service, which is expected to begin within six months of the start date. The facility will be for injuries and for GPs to refer patients to, saving them from having to travel for treatment.
THE ROLE OF THE FRIENDS OF FAVERSHAM COTTAGE HOSPITAL AND COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES HAS BEEN HUGELY SIGNIFICANT AS THEY ARE FUNDING THE X-RAY EQUIPMENT, IT’S SETUP COSTS AND HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO FUNDING THE NECESSARY RADIOLOGY AND ELECTRICAL SURVEYS ON THE PREMISES AS PART OF THE TENDER PREPARATION WORK.
