Our learning event took place on 12th May. The event was a platform for us to share the findings of the extensive piece of consultation work that Sleeping Giants have been carrying out on our behalf. Most notably, sharing the appetite of both health and social care professionals and people with lived experiences, for the three project ideas:
• Expert Patient Peer Mentoring Scheme
• Befriending Scheme
• Clinical Lead
The event brought together health and social care professionals and those with lived experience of ME, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and long covid. It included talks from Dr Charles Shepherd (Medical Advisor, ME Association) on the updated NICE Guidelines and Liz Forsyth (Strategic Commissioning, NHS Dumfries and Galloway) on the way in which the work of our network fits within the aims of the NHS Strategic Commissioning Plan.
The recording of the event can be viewed below.
