This Group affords an opportunity for our u3a members to attend talks on health and wellbeing topics.
After a good start in 2019, talks arranged by Coordinator, Julia, for March and April 2020 had to be cancelled due to the Coronavirus lockdown. They recommenced in December 2021.
During the Covid gap, Julia managed to continue her regular meetings with the Patient Safety and the Patient and Public Involvement Groups attached to the North West Coast NHS Innovation Agency via video conferencing.
Do take a few minutes to check below to view Julia’s comprehensive Reports from all these meetings. They are interesting and informative whether attended by video conferencing or in person.
Unfortunately the meeting scheduled for 7th January has been cancelled because of the concern over the rising numbers of cases of the Omicron variant of Covid-19. We hope it won’t be too long before this event can be rearranged.
The December meeting of the NHS Innovation Agency Patient and Public Involvement Senate received two presentations, one was about the ‘Morecambe Bay Hood’ which is a full-face protective hood to be worn by medical staff as PPE in place of FFP3 facemasks, and the other was a face to face demonstration of the socks that were showcased last month.
