Neil Beattie & John Ewing on Message in a Bottle project Tuesday 24th February
Neil Beattie and John Ewing delivered a detailed presentation on the new major initiative “Message in a Bottle” The scheme is fully supported by the new South Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership together with key partners such as the Community Safety Partnership, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue, Scottish Ambulance Service and Voluntary Action South Ayrshire.
Message in a Bottle is aimed at anyone who feels vulnerable at home. This will usually be elderly people but can be people of any age. Rotary will supply bottle packs to GP Surgeries, Dental Surgeries, Community Pharmacies, Community Nurses, Health Visitors, Hospitals and Social Workers. The bottle pack which will be kept in the fridge, gives the means to alert emergency services to important medical information and contact details, should an accident or sudden illness occur in the home.
A major, South Ayrshire launch is planned for 26th April. Watch this space!!
