Duty of Candour

Anyone interested in the new ‘Duty of Candour’ can find out more from this link to the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

This is an important development and puts a duty on medical staff  to be open and honest when things go wrong.

Interesting research

Jacqui picked-up this link to some research into fibromyalgia which she thought you might find interesting.


We spent the afternoon in the Caribbean

On 18 June we took part in the Caribbean open day at SCILL.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and FMCPPopinClub won the raffle prizes.  Jacqui won the bouquet of flowers and Amal won a cake.  So a clean sweep for the club!

The afternoon included some Caribbean food and information about what the groups are doing.

Banstead Cream Teas

Sutton Community Transport took a group of us over to Edibles in Banstead where we all enjoyed a yummy cream tea.

We booked in advance, as there was a large group of us, and the staff at the cafe were really helpful.  It was nice to go somewhere different and it was a real help using Sutton Community Transport.

We walked around the shops in Banstead afterwards, as many did not know the area, and did some window shopping .

A good day out.
