Bringing the Community into the Ward @ Lothian Chambers
Jan 16 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Bringing the Community into the Ward @ Lothian Chambers | Scotland | United Kingdom

Bringing the Community into the Ward: a conversation to explore how community activities, culture and practice can be brought to older people in hospitals.

On Monday, 16th January EVOC, Artlink and Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership will be hosting an event to explore the possibilities for an innovative project which aims to strengthen cross-sector working in three key NHS Lothian sites for older people.

The work, at Prospectbank, Western General Hospital and Liberton hospital will ensure that community resources and innovative custom and practice can support colleagues across sectors to ensure that a stay in hospital is less daunting and help people reconnect to the community.

We will be joined by colleagues from Artlink, Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership, Health Improvement Scotland and City of Edinburgh Council Museums.

At this event, we will be looking for organisations and groups who would first like to explore methods to employ creative methods of strengthening practice, as well as aiming to put together a programme of events and activities to take place during the next months.

We very much hope that you and your organisation would enjoy taking part in this exciting opportunity.
