Members of Leominster Meeting Centre were delighted to welcome staff from Marches Surgery based in Westfield Walk in Leominster. 10 members of staff, mainly receptionists visited as part of their CPD programme. They were all quickly embraced into the Meeting Centre and enjoyed a chat with members. I don’t think they had expected that they would be playing Giant Jenga but it was quite soon after arrival that the room went very quiet and everyone was totally engaged in extracting bricks and placing them on the top of the tower. The last time I saw the tower standing it was very wobbly and at a strange angle but this just served as a challenge and there were great skills in manual dexterity and nerve demonstrated – too much for me!
The Marches Surgery are represented on the Leominster Meeting Centre Advisory Group which helps with the embedding of the service within the Herefordshire Dementia Care Pathway. Information can easily be shared and referrals facilitated quickly. It was a real pleasure to be part of this visit and see this fantastic example of joined-up Leominster and what a wonderful community spirit there is.
