St Helens Health Forum – Sam is attending this meeting on our behalf. It is in place of the Partnership Boards (LIT) and is an opportunity to feed into decisions.

Benefits – a top tip for anyone called in for a Work Capability Assessment is to take someone with them – do not go alone. Lesley described how she had been in with people she supports.

Iceland on Ormskirk Street do home deliveries of food if you buy over £25 in their shop (you have to go to the shop to select it, but they will deliver it for you – which saves you having to carry it). You need to register with them for a Bonus Card to use the free service. Ask at the shop for more details.
