Bowled Over by a Welcome in Tamworth

A new Place of Welcome has opened in Tamworth, taking place every Wednesday afternoon between 1.30 and 3.30pm.  You will be bowled over by its location, for the host venue is Tamworth Castle Bowling Club.  The green itself is closed throughout the winter months, but the doors are still open for people to come and enjoy a cuppa and a chat over a game of dominoes.  Why not pop along and say hello?

Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent set to introduce One Health and Care electronic integrated care records

Patients’ health and care records in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent will soon be available electronically to authorised health and social care practitioners.

It will mean a doctor in a hospital, or a paramedic who attends a 999 call will be able to access the same crucial information as a GP, such as details of allergies and current medications, bringing potentially life-saving benefits.
