Parent/Carers Of People With A Learning Disability – WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Medical Student Training next Friday (30th October) – make a difference.

‘Session with parents and carers sharing their experiences of GP practices and hospital visits’Picture1

Conwy Connect are regularly involved in learning disability training for medical students. Part of this is a ‘meet the parents’ (or carers) session where volunteers share their experiences (good and bad) of medical professionals.

We feel such input is invaluable to the training of future medical professionals and is our chance to encourage better practice. If you can give your time it would be greatly appreciated.

The next session will be on 30 October at Colwyn Bay Cricket Club, 77 Penrhyn Ave, Rhos on Sea between 10.30 and 12.

For more information phone us on 01492 536486
