RSPG Appoints Community Coordinator

The Roseland Surgeries Patients Group (RSPG) have just announced the appointment of their Community Coordinator who will take up her post at the end of February.

Hilary Box lives close to Portscatho. Her links to the Roseland go back 30 years when she honeymooned here, having married into a family with strong Cornish roots. She has lived with her family in Cornwall for the past 12 years.  Hilary has worked in health related areas for the NHS at Treliske and specifically on several research projects that link closely with the role of Community Coordinator.  She also previously worked in midwifery in Berkshire.

Hilary applied for the post as she wanted a role that rooted her in the community, that included direct interactions with people and makes greater use of the skills that she has – RSPG told Roseland Online they are absolutely delighted that she has accepted the post.

This post has been funded by the generosity of some 90 Roseland residents who committed to paying a monthly standing order of £10 and also to become members of the 300 Club.  Members are then entered into a monthly draw and the possibility of winning a prize of up to £100! They have also received generous donations from individuals.

RSPG could do with some more 300 Club members as the funds allow them to offer only part time hours as a starter,  so if anyone is considering joining please contact David Calton, the Treasurer, on 01872 580593.

The RSPG will produce a leaflet to explain how Hilary will be working. She will have a mobile phone and details of this number will be published as soon as she is ready to take referrals.
