Presentation by Mind – Close 2 Home (Shelley Harrison and Joanne Moyle)
Shelley & Joanne gave the group a brief overview of what they duties covered. For example, to name but a few:-
1) They carry out an initial session, within 4 – 6 weeks of referral, with a view of looking at how that is impacting on a person’s mental health.
2) They look at ‘sign posting’ people to the most relevant agency.
3) They can assist with self-help.
4) They work closely with citizens advice.
A discussion took place during and after Shelley & Joanne had left and members generally found the information interesting, however the general feeling / conclusion was that they appeared to be duplicating what other agencies were also doing at this moment in time in regard to ‘care’
SL informed the group that Dr. Chaudhry would be leaving on June 16th 2017, there was no replacement as yet but locums have been arranged for the summer months.
SL informed the group that the renewal of the car parking white lines had started, this had been noticed by various group members.
SL updated the group on the 100 day challenge which is aimed at the practice. – Watch this space.
Any Other business
