Neil's Weekly Blog! #5

on Tuesday, 21 April 2015.

This week I attended an NHS conference in Bolton on Wednesday which saw the launch of a film called “Through our eyes”.

This was a powerful and useful day aimed at providers, commissioner’s and third sector organisations to think hard about how we ensure that the most excluded groups in our communities are given the opportunity to access a service that meets their specific needs. This is an area I believe that can only be done in partnership with other service providers both here in Lancaster and Kendal. We will be looking for the opportunities to do this in the future.

i also had the privilege of calling in to the 21st annual CancerCare Bridge Tournament held at Lancaster Bridge Club. The organiser Michael Rothwell welcomed me and I was able to say a warm word of thanks to all before play ( a very serious occupation) started. It’s amazing to think that over the 21 years of the competition they have raised over £50,000 for CancerCare! Brilliant!

I hope everyone has a lovely Easter!
