1. Medway Neurological Hub
➢ A one-stop centre for all with neurological conditions, to include:
Neurologists/ GPs/ Nurses, neuro-trained for assessment/ referral/ signposting
➢ Treatments, e.g. neuro-physiotherapy, speech therapy, counselling, dietary advice etc.
➢ Therapies, e.g. Pilates, Exercise, Singing, possibly hydro-therapy
➢ Neurological charities to provide information & support
➢ Could be incorporated into Medway Model.
This Hub has been proposed at a number of meetings with the Medway Clinical Commissioning Group (MCCG), and we have been assured that the proposal is on the radar. It chimes with the MCCG policy of using hubs in the Medway Model and also chimes with the need to reduce out-patient care at Medway Maritime Hospital in order to free-up parking for the proposed new Urgent Care centre.
2. Prescription Charges:
MNN has been campaigning for free prescriptions for those of working age who have long-term conditions. There is a national campaign for this, and locally MNN has sent letters to our 3 Medway MPs. We have outlined the case and asked them for their support. Click HERE
for an example of one of our letters.
