Meeting in Workington 12th June 2014

We had a useful meeting in Workington – the first time we had visited West Cumbria, but not the last.

Meeting at the new Fire Station – an excellent venue for the 3rd Sector – we attracted an excellent discussion group.

We were delighted that Angie Stewart Regional Coordinator for the MS Society could step in at the last minute as our original speaker Peter Wearing had to attend an NHS England meeting in Birmingham.  Angie gave an update on the national strategy which led to some good plans for how we can extend our influence to support people with neurological conditions.
