The Chelford Patient Representative Group is a group of volunteers who work with the Chelford Surgery to represent the interests of patients. The Group brings together patients, GPs and staff members from our Surgery to meet during the year, to discuss issues relating to the practice and the services provided to patients.
On Saturday the 3rd September, the Group held a very successful event at Chelford Primary School, with over 40 attendees. The event was designed to help residents stay safe in winter. A number of guest speakers offered valuable help and advice including:
Dr. Helen Thomas from Chelford Surgery
Sally Wilson and Nora Walsh from Age UK
Maggie Harker from Cheshire Fire Service
Mark Lodge from Cheshire EastTrading Standards
Bee Crisp from Connecting Chelford
The event covered health, personal safety, exploitation and scams and caring for others with dementia. Guest speakers were on hand to give informal chats to anyone who wished to follow up after the talks. Generous donations of cakes and raffle prizes were provided by members of the PRG, Connecting Chelford and Chelford residents. Proceeds from the raffle were donated to the Alzheimers Society.
