Hi Everyone

Why not join our friendly group of carers – we meet up every month for a chat and catch up and share some lunch too. Seems a long time since we all got together but we will do again as soon as restrictions allow!!

We usually meet up on the last Thursday of each month from 12 noon till about 2.30pm and enjoy a Christmas Lunch together in December!!

We try to have as many guest speakers as we can, often from DMBC who can give us information on various topics.

Jane and Glynis, the liaison nurses from the NHS sometimes called in to meet and update carers about health issues affecting people with learning disabilities. Jane has now retired and has been replaced by Cat Magee but she is on maternity leave at the moment so we look forward to meeting her when we can.

Cat will continue to provide support and guidance to GP practices, community nurses, Supported Living and care home providers and Glynis who is based at DRI is responsible for training doctors and nurses and helping if there are any issues regarding appointments, operations or admissions into hospital for people with a learning disability.

Glynis’ team has now grown and here they all are:
