K.V.G. & Rural Outreach Scheme

Secretary

 

Pauline  Watson
The Grey House
70 Muirs
Kinross
KY13 8AY


In Kinross town and Kinross-shire we provide a variety of services whenever a “good neighbour” is required. In particular attending hospitals either for admission, clinic appointments, or visiting relatives. The majority of our service users do not qualify on medical grounds for the patient transport service, but yet are too infirm to make the journey by using the very limited public transport system in this area. In other words our services enable members of our community to use facilities they would not otherwise have access to. Referrals come from Social Services, Health Centres, family, friends and service users themselves. A large proportion of our “work” is helping service users access the services they need at our local health centre.
