ACTIVE TAMESIDE

ACTIVE TAMESIDE
There are times when a 4.30am start is worth it and today was one of those days. An early morning train to Manchester to share a fabulously interactive afternoon with the supervisory team at Active Tameside.

There wasn't a quiet moment as the team explored additional communication tactics, asked questions and embraced a few new ideas. Their working environment can be tough and they already have tried and tested skills - what a joy to share my world and hear about theirs.

Thank you to Dan Higgins and his welcoming team.

SCOTTISH CLINICAL LEAD FELLOWS

SCOTTISH CLINICAL LEAD FELLOW SCHEME

When I was asked to present to the SCLF Fellows I had limited knowledge of who they were and set to work finding out. The first paragraph of my google search caught my attention.

'A prestigious scheme open to trainees in Scotland who have the ambition and curiosity to push their development to new heights at the leading edge'

That caught my interest but not half as much as the morning I spent with this fabulous group of health professionals at the end of May. Wow - what an energy and powerful group.

A few weeks later ........ a surprise in the form of fizz as a thank you for delivering their communication session. I anticipate a bit of a hangover with this one!!
