Hiya all, please find below the link for the new website I have been advising on which I said a little about this morning. What makes this one so different is instead of it just being a national one, if you type in your own area at the top, (its only available in the south west at the moment but will be rolled out nation wide in the near future hopefully) it tells you what services are available near you at the touch of a button so to speak. Also there is a forum where you can talk with others about similar problems.
The reason why this is so cutting edge is that eventually you will be able to rate the services you have (Similar to “Trip Advisor” ) and people will be able to see which services are performing better than others! That in turn will force those sevices not performing so well to do so, as they will also be monoitored by those that be, in the NHS and Goverment !! this is all to do with transparency so we, jo public can gauge whats really going on. Please have a look and tell me what you think. Its taken a while to get together and is still work in progress but it will be nice to know what my friends think, also please leave a message on the site itself as well about how you think it looks, best wishes, Norrms and family xxxxxx

    Dear Norms,

    I am from Bude Rotary Club. My wife heard you speak at the BCPA Autumn Seminar in November.
    We would very much like to discuss inviting you to Bude to speak to the Rotary Club (and probably many visitors) one evening in the next few months. 01288 321749. Thanks, Mark.

    Hi Norm (hope its OK to be familiar)

    We have been working on a community project in our area for the past 3 years attempting to raise funds for a community Hub.

    12 months before this I got a voluntary job working in our Local Methodist Claybourne Home specialists in dementia care, as their treasurer. As I was passing something made me go in I am certain God had a plan the place as taken over part of my heart over.

    Back to para one from the start an important part of our vision we have included a Dementia cares cafe in our business plan. We hope other things will grow from this venture, we would also like to influence the area into becoming a respect area.

    A Church colleague of mine informed me of your story but only snippets, and of course the World Rock Day. I am going to do something not sure what yet but I have a meeting with Hospital manager Church leaders and others to investigate possibilities.

    This is the rub mate I have no idea how to use Face Book it scares me, would you please be good enough to send me details on the net or by email were I can get fall facts of your vision, if I am going to influence I of course need this it is a long way of but I am getting excited for the prospects.

    God Bless you all
