We are pleased to announce a new three-year funding agreement with LRSN to support the innovative Health Hut. This collaboration aims to extend the provision of healthcare services to farming communities in Lincolnshire.
The LRSN Health Hut is specifically designed as a mobile clinic to ensure accessibility to rural farming communities. At various events and locations, the Health Hut’s dedicated nurses offer essential health checks including blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure assessments. Additionally, they engage in meaningful conversations with clients to address any other health concerns they may have.
The Health Hut’s nurses also provide referrals to GPs and other health services when necessary, ensuring that clients receive the appropriate care and support. Each client receives a personalised card with their readings for future reference, as well as leaflets and information about any finding. Every session lasts up to 20 minutes.
“We’re really excited to be working with RABI,” said Amy Thomas, Head of LRSN. “We know that our Health Hut makes a difference to the mental and physical health farming communities in Lincolnshire, and we are delighted to be able to extend that with the support of RABI.”
RABI and LRSN are excited about the potential of the Health Hut to make a positive difference in the lives of farming people through accessible healthcare services. This grant demonstrates their shared commitment to supporting the physical and mental health of the farming community.
