  1. Thank you for inviting me to the event. Actually it was Sarah Jennings who forwarded me the invitation- otherwise no GPs would have been there….!

    My main observation and point is please please please include general practice in all of your consultation/plans/whatever. We are at “the coal face” and with suitable collaboration could
    1- signpost many more people to your good work
    2- help reduce the need for medication and referral on to counselling/hospital
    3- measure the reduction in workload and improvement in wellbeing outcomes resulting from any work that you do
    4- help put a case for diverting funding from treatment to naturally healthy activities ( i.e. all your groups!)
    PLEASE do not exclude us. Is this exclusion some kind of Public Health plot against general practice? I hope not.

    I am very very keen to link up with you guys to break down the barriers and create a bridge between general practice and healthy living in our communities.

    I have dropped a day at my surgery to put more effort into developing this joined up working. I am currently not being paid for this but i feel so passionate about it. Fortunately my free day is Thursday so I would love to come and be included in your next meeting on 22nd January.

    Great workshop. I didn’t have time to stick up any post its as was involved in discussion with several others who attended.

    My feedback for a better workshop next time would be have more time for the interactive/feedback bit which is usually the most helpful. Better that than sticking stickies on a flip chart!
    I think I was the only person that was allowed to ask any question/make any point at the end which was a bit disappointing as I was looking froward to hearing what others thought.
