Cancer scare inspired Shipston man’s idea for travel app being used to help improve public transport

A NEW booking app that focuses exclusively on the transport needs of individual passengers has been developed in Shipston after a trip to the dentist turned into a potential life and death trauma.

Olly Kemp, director of OJE Technology in Shipston, recalls how his father Kim Kemp, now aged 70, drove to his dentist in Monmouthshire in 2013 to finally have his wisdom tooth removed after intense pain. After a general anaesthetic, the tooth was surgically removed leaving behind a wound.

However, after a few months, the wound was not healing, and the pain continued. Kim booked a follow-up appointment and the dentist took a scan to check everything was well. What followed was a life-changing experience.
