The NHS at 70: What will new technology mean for the NHS and its patients?

Source By: The Kings Fund

To mark the BBC's coverage of the NHS's 70th birthday in July 2018, researchers from the Health Foundation, the Institute for Fiscal Studies, The King’s Fund and the Nuffield Trust have joined forces for the first time, using combined expertise to shed light on some of the big questions on the NHS.

The four organisations have been asked by the BBC to look at five key topics, covering the relative strengths and weaknesses of the health service, the state of social care, NHS funding, the public’s expectations of the NHS and the potential of technology to change things in future. This project and the reports we have produced are intended to inform the national conversation about the past, present and future of the NHS.

We are looking for mental health peer mentors

Source By: The Advocacy Project

We have extended the deadline for peer mentor applications. We are looking for people with lived experience of mental illness who would like to be trained as peer mentors and offer one to one support to someone experiencing mental illness. The peer mentor will work with the mentee towards a goal that is of importance to them over 6-8 sessions, for example attending a local sports group.

This is a paid opportunity for peer mentors and may offer a pathway to employment or other opportunities. Applicants will be invited to an informal interview and training will take place in September.

Earlier on in the summer, a small group of peer mentors completed sessions with their first mentees, feedback included:

  • ·         “I found the mentoring experience a positive one – I have managed to develop a number of key skills.”
  • ·          “Went well-is being confident, to be think positive, for being careful”
  • ·         “I think my highlight so far was last week my mentee said she was feeling better after her session that was a very rewarding experience”
  • ·         “I think the whole project  has a been a rewarding experience, it has helped me cope better in peoples company, seeing others in their situation makes me see how far I have come along.”
  • ·         “It has helped me to grabble with my demons and build my confidence and social contact relating to this project it has been very helpful.”

If you know of anyone that may be  interested in the role, please pass them the attached role description, application form and equal opportunities form. The peer mentoring scheme is being coordinated by my colleague Sophie Hudson, Sophie can be contacted on 020 3960 7910 or at Sophie@advocacyproject.org.uk. If people need support completing the application form, they can talk to Sophie. We would really appreciate it if you could pass on the attached poster or add the poster to notice boards/ community boards.

We will also be looking for people who would benefit from support from a peer mentor (a mentee), I have attached the referral form
