On 29th June Catching Lives held its first ‘Health Day’ for clients. Professionals from a wide range of services were invited to the day centre to speak to clients, informing them of what support they can potentially offer.
Attendees including members of the Hep C Trust, NHS TB team, a Sexual Health Nurse, a Registered General Nurse, and an Independent Domestic Violence Advocate from the Rising Sun Domestic Abuse charity.
Many clients were also able to get a test, for example to rule out having Hep C (and start the process of entering treatment if testing positive).
Thank you to everyone who attended on the day for offering this support to our clients.
We aim to repeat these days every 3 months and plan to offer flu jabs for our clients at the next one in the autumn. We are always keen to speak to any health professionals who may want to offer support to our clients, at any time of the year. For details please email firstname.lastname@example.org
