Action on Elder Abuse...
A reminder that it's World Elder Abuse Awareness Day tomorrow, Friday 15 June.
As part of our campaign to encourage people to say something if they suspect someone is being abused or neglected there will be a stand in Mullions Restaurant from 11am-3pm promoting the safeguarding of vulnerable adults.
Stop by our stand and you will have the opportunity to watch a powerful new DVD featuring some of the vulnerable adults in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly who have experienced abuse.
The DVD is three minutes long and those who take the time to view it will be entered into a prize draw to win a photo shoot and canvas worth £240 kindly donated by the Truro based Light Box Photographic Company.
For further information contact Mary Mallett, Safeguarding Adults Named Nurse on X2446
Free BNF app...

Although not currently available through our internal networks, you may wish to use this on personal devices and internet connections. Users do need to have an NHS Athens password and should also be aware of the restrictions on using mobile devices in clinical areas.
