Eastern & Coastal Kent PCT | Press Release | 1 December 2008
NHS Eastern and Coastal Kent (Primary Care Trust) is pleased to announce it has appointed DMC Healthcare Ltd as the preferred provider for a new GP-led Health Centre in Sheppey Community Hospital. This decision was made at the Primary Care Trust (PCT) Board meeting on the 28th November 2008. Locating the new facility at the Sheppey Community Hospital is making good use of existing popular NHS facilities that are well known to the local population.

The facility is an important addition to the existing GP services in the Swale locality and will offer an enhanced service to both registered and unregistered patients, with access to a GP or other healthcare professional available from 8am until 8pm seven days a week, 365 days a year, with a combination of bookable and “walk-in” sessions.

Services will include a mobile facility that will visit selected locations around the island offering access to people who find it hard to access existing services.

The facility will open by March 30th 2009 and the Primary Care Trust and DMC Healthcare Ltd will continue to provide information as the details of this project emerge.
