Have your say on health and social care services at the Citizens Reference Group

27 Oct

The next Citizen Reference Group (CRG) meeting on Tuesday 10th November. It will take place from 1 – 4pm at Sheffield Town Hall.

The CRG was set up to enable Sheffield citizen’s to have their say on existing and future health and social care services. We are always looking to build on existing members and engage a variety of citizen’s from other groups and the wider community. The CRG meets quarterly to share intelligence, experience and ideas which will help inform and shape new health and social care projects. Everyone is welcome to join the CRG and we would like your help to encourage and inspire people to do so. Please could you help to share and promote information about the CRG amongst your networks and contacts?

For those unable to make November’s meeting, the next meeting will take place on 3rd February 2016, 10am to 1pm at the Town Hall. If you cannot attend either of these meetings but would still like to contribute to the meeting then please get in touch and we would be delighted to discuss this with you further.

For more information and to register your interest in the group please email Liz McGrael (nee Hartlebury) or Suzanne Rutter via Involvement or contact us on: 07815 707403. Thank you for all your continued help and support.

to plan journeys using the new network

· Each bus stop has information about changes to the services that use that stop. This information is provided in poster format.

· North and South Sheffield maps have been produced and are available at Interchanges for customers to pick up

· Leaflets will be distributed to households across the city providing detailed information for their area

· Posters and maps are available on all buses across the city

Smoke Free Mums – Time for Me – Relapse Prevention Service

27 Oct

The Smokefree Mums – Time for Me is a brand new relapse prevention service being piloted for the first time in Sheffield and we would really appreciate your help in supporting it to be a success.

The free 12 week service is aimed at helping women who have quit smoking before or during pregnancy to remain Smokefree after their baby is born and offers a combination of Home Visits and Group Support. Our ‘Time for Me’ Groups offer social and behavioral support including advice on coping mechanisms to prevent relapse along with fun and interactive activities such as baby massage, pampering, arts and crafts and healthy eating. The groups are delivered from accessible childrens centres across the city and transport can be provided free of charge for both the mother and baby.

If you come across any women who have quit smoking before or during their pregnancy and would benefit from our service you can refer them in by phoning 0114 209 4029.

We can sign women up antenatally up until 12 months post delivery.
