Recently, Medway Council's Health and Adult Social Care committee arranged a meeting to take place at the Ashford Community Health Centre, with Conservative Councillors Wendy Purdy and David Wildey delighted to attend. They met with John Carey, Director of Estates and Planning, as well as many other KMPT team members - including Sharon Greasley from Adult Social Care.
The purpose of the visit was to observe and discuss the configuration and working practices of KMPT at the Ashford Centre, as Britton Farm in Gillingham will soon play host to a larger version of this Model of Care.
The Eureka Park centre has open plan office space on the top floor with clinical rooms downstairs, and a number of teams sit in a large office area, providing opportunity for Cross team Working. The clinical area lies on the ground floor. This building was refurbished in order to house mental health services and ensures a more modern fit for purpose service is available for local people, and moving forward the Conservative Group would be delighted to see similar delivery at Britton Farm.
