“QUESTION TIME FOR NEUROLOGY: Continuum of Care” and Parkinson’s Awareness...
Mon 3 April 2017, 09:30 – 16:00 BST
The Black Country Neurological Alliance (BCNA) is an umbrella organisation, led by people who are affected directly or indirectly by a neurological or neuromuscular condition. The Alliance aims to bring the people of the Black Country living with neuro conditions closer to services available from both statutory and voluntary bodies within the region.
Following on from our very successful Regional Roadshows, the BCNA is now organising a series of Question Time Forum events, featuring health and social care professionals from across the Black Country. The first of these willl be on Monday 3rd April at The Village Hotel in Dudley, not far from the town centre.
A panel of six health and social care professionals will tell us about their role in supporting people with long term and complex needs, and then the floor will be yours! You will be able to discuss with others how what you have heard relates to those living with a long term neurological / neuromuscular condition, and then prepare in-depth questions to put to the panel for them to respond to.
To mark Parkinson's Awareness Week there will be a special awareness raising event before lunch, attended by the High Sheriff for the West Midlands. Participants are welcome to attend either or both parts of the day; it would help us if you could indicate your preference when booking.
Lunch will be provided, so we do need to know who will be coming so that we can make sure there is enough for everyone. You can let us know your dietary requirements on booking.
If you represent an organisation and would like to bring your own display and information, you will be most welcome. There is no charge for this, but a voluntary donation towards our costs would be much appreciated. Please let us know your requirements (by email to email@example.com). The display area will be used by some other organisations for passing through, but there is a good-sized space.
The proposed timetable for this event is as follows:
9.30am Registration for Parkinson's event and BCNA Question Time, or for Parkinson's event only.
10am Introduction to the day, followed by Parkinson's Awareness Week event, in the presence of the High Sheriff of the West Midlands.
11.30am Registration open for BCNA Question Time
12noon Lunch and an opportunity to meet other participants and view the various displays from organisations supporting people with neurological conditions.
1pm Panel members introduce themselves and their work. Invited panellists include representatives from Dudley CCG, Link Voluntary Service, Rehabilitation Service, Palliative and End of Life care, and Clinical Pyschology. They will then answer your questions, which we hope will be challenging and address the issues of concern to everyone.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
There is plenty of free parking, including several designated spaces for blue-badge holders. The venue is fully accessible and on one level. If you are coming by public transport, Dudley is well-served by buses, and the main bus station is a short distance from the bus; trains are less convenient for Dudley
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Send these to the BCNA website at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
It would be very helpful if you could.
