To seek approval of a number of proposals in respect of Children’s Services to transform the balance of care; to maximise the infra-structure available in the City; and, consequently to radically reduce the cost and use of high cost placements out with the City in tandem with enhanced locality family support.
Partnership staff Rachel Bruce, lead pharmacist, and Chrissie Stuart, a practice nurse, won the Chairman’s Improving Health Category Gold Award for the More than Medicine project based at Crail GP practice, North East Locality.
The Improving Health Category commends staff who have a Healthy Working Lives idea or have implemented an initiative to improve healthy eating, smoking cessation or improving mental health.
The Partnership’s Families for Children Team was recently awarded the Best Online Campaign at the Scottish Creative Awards for their recent #opentofostering campaign. It was also Highly Commended in the Creative Strategy category - Integrated Strategy.
Cathy Coll, Service Manager at Families for Children, said: “We are delighted to have won this prestigious award. Having previously run several campaigns we were able to use our experience to plan our new campaign. We focused on cost effective digital advertising which has the advantage of being easy to analyse.”
This month we are celebrating the success of Partnership staff and projects at recent awards ceremonies. We also look at the work being done to train staff who work with people with dementia, the success of providing Money Advice Services in our health centres and a new campaign to help reduce numbers of young people smoking.
