We had a very special meeting. Iain Tulley, Chief Executive of the AWP, and Bill Bruce-Jones, clinical director of the AWP in BANES, came and answered questions set by carers and service users.
40 people attended what I would call a successful, frank and honest discussion. People felt that they were heard and given some honest feedback. Many thanks to all who attended and all who submitted questions.
A big thank you to KS2 and New Hope members for help on the night. A special thanks to T who laid on a brilliant spread of food and R who helped facilitate the evening.
We are in the process of writing a report on the event, and we will publish it when it is completed.
Finally, many thanks to Iain Tulley and Bill Bruce-Jones for giving their time and for being honest with their answers.
