Next monthly meeting

Tuesday March 26 at the Epione Centre, 383 Wightman Road, corner of Denmark Road, N8 0DZ

We’ll be able to discuss the current state of social care services in Haringey with Councillor Lucia Das Neves, the Cabinet member responsible for social care. This is a most important opportunity – please think of questions you’d like to ask her.

Forum meeting Tuesday April 23rd, 2pm at the Epione Centre

The April speaker will be Paul Allen. He’s employed by the NHS but works a lot with Haringey Council, and spends a lot of time on health prevention issues in Haringey. Paul has been developing a ‘toolkit’ to assess your own state of health in relation to ageing, which hopefully will make it easier for you to present issues to your GP and for your GP to know how you are doing. He wants to try it out on us and get some feedback.
