CPHVA News September 2005

Hello again, hope you are all well.

Unfortunately no news or views forthcoming from yourselves this month but here are a few items that you may find interesting.

The Northern Ireland School Nurse Conference in Belfast on the 6th September as a great success with a wide range of topics being discussed. Well done to Briege Coyle and all the contributors who made it such an informative day. It gave me some idea of what could be achieved in Scotland if we have the collective will.

Unfortunately the CPHVA Scottish committee could not have as full a meeting as they had intended on the 12th September due to a limited turn out. However a good discussion ensued covering a range of topics that are affecting the Scottish membership. Resulting from this meeting the committee decided that a Knowledge and Skills Framework study day should be held on the 1st November.

I attended the Nursing Live exhibition on the 14th & 15th September in Glasgow. It was great to see so many of our members there and to listen to your opinions as you visited our stand.

A few questions for you

Do you feel that you could contribute to the discussion over issues that affect the members in our organisation?
