After qualifying in 1996 and working for two of her Tutors in five practices across Essex and East Sussex Kate Miles honed her Osteopathic skills and learnt a great deal about how to run a business. Armed with this information plus thoughts on location the search for suitable premises began.
On 1st November 1997 the lease on The High Street, New Romney was signed and after three weeks of building and decorating work Romney Marsh Osteopaths was open for business. Initially as expected the patient list grew slowly but after one year the practice was busy enough to take on its first employee and gradually, as the demand increased, extra working days and reception staff were added to the diary.
2003 proved to be a big year, not only did we take on our first Osteopathic Assistant, who Kate met during her 18 month Paediatrics teaching stint back at her old college clinic, she also re-located the business to 39 Littlestone Road. As a consequence patients are now offered off road parking, ground floor premises, three treatment rooms and disabled access/facilities. The move has proved very successful, Romney Marsh Osteopaths is now proud to house two Osteopaths, five Receptionists and several other Therapists.
