Self care event

The NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group held it's second stakeholder event on 21 May 2013 at Trinty Park, Ipswich around the theme of self care. 

The event was well supported with over 150 local people in attendance to hear a presentation from Dr Mark Shenton and Ms Gulshan Kayembe before joining in the small group discussions around the following questions:

  • “What are your self-care options and what are the benefits?”
  • “What might stop you from caring for yourself or your family?" 
  • "What are the barriers, what makes life difficult?"
  • "What can the NHS do to help you care for yourself?”

Closing the day’s sessions, Dr Mark Shenton invited each of the 22 groups to produce one, succinct, ‘take home’ message of the day for the CCG. 

The full report from the event can be read here.
