Cross Party Group on Neurological Conditions – 14th November St Asaph.

Cross Party Group on Neurological Conditions – 14th November St Asaph.

Dear friend I would like  invite you to the  North Wales meeting of the Cross-Party Group for Neurological Conditions.  The Cross-Party Group for Neurosciences was formed by the Wales Neurological Alliance in 2009 with North Wales AM, Mark Isherwood, as its chair, and seeks to raise awareness about neurological conditions and improve services across Wales. The Cross-Party Group is a forum to influence Assembly Members so most of the meetings are held in the National Assembly for Wales, but we are now organising the  meeting in North Wales and would be grateful if you could attend. On Friday 14 November 2014 we will be holding the North Wales meeting at the Oriel House St Asaph  from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The meeting will focus mainly on the Welsh Government  Neurological Conditions Delivery Plan and how this is being implemented locally.  There will be Professor Matt Makin and Annette Morris from the BCUHB Neuroscience Network, and Dr Peter Enevoldson from the Walton Centre as guest speakers. We want to bring as many people living with different neurological conditions together so that people can air their views to senior officials at the Walton Centre and from the Health Board, and raise particular problems they face with North Wales Assembly Members. We need to know who is planning to attend, so if you are, please RSVP by 1.11.14 to info@walesneurologicalalliance.org.uk? If you would like any further information about the meeting, please contact Urtha Felda 07920 429 477.
