Westminster Arts are currently recruiting for their Remembering Together arts and dementia project for people with dementia and their family carers to enable them to share memories together.

It uses a range of arts techniques but the emphasis is on fun and socialising for everyone involved. There are break-out sessions in some of the sessions for the carers too to look at reminiscence techniques, share experiences and solutions etc., which means that they form an informal peer support group. The project ends with the couples being given artwork based on their memories, stories and photos.

Remembering Together is open to people from all 3 boroughs, and takes place 3.30 – 5.30pm for 12 weeks starting May 28.

Location:  42 Westbourne Park Rd, W2 5PH. Tube: Royal Oak. Buses 7,18,23,27, 36.

Refreshments are provided.

Hammersmith & Fulham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is currently in process of agreeing local priorities for 2015/2016.

Please click on the link below to have your say:

The CCG has the opportunity to set its own priorities reflecting the needs of local residents.

The area considered to be a local priority are those which currently do not have a national target attached or a contractual requirement set by NHS England, Public Health England and other organisations.

The CCG often uses this opportunity to identify improvements that they want to achieve in areas like patient empowerment, social sector development or partnership working the Local Authority.  They have identified the following six areas as potential priorities for 2015/2016:

  • Increasing coverage of children vaccinated for MMR (Measles, mumps and rubella)
  • Increasing the number of adult patients with learning disabilities who receive an annual health check
  • Increasing the number of diagnosed diabetic patients with a care plan
  • Increasing the coverage of children with the flu vaccine
  • Increasing the identification of young carers
  • Increasing sign-posting of children with or at risk from obesity into weight management services

Please click on the link below to have your say on the CCG local priorities for 2015/2016

The survey will be open until Friday 20 March.

The CCG thanks you in advance for your participation and help.
