Our teams in Mid Argyll and Kintyre held various information stalls during self management week 2017 in Lochgilphead and Campbeltown.
Sarah McFadzean, our Kintyre Long term conditions advocate, held information stalls along with the Link Club and TSI at the Aqualibrium and the the Campbeltown Co-op. They were busy mornings with many visitors to her information stall.
Sarah says “It was fantastic to work along with Tracy Chambers from Campbeltown Link Club and Dochas Centre and Michelle Hodgkinson from the TSI Office, Campbeltown. If any members of the public are looking for information, please give me a call and I can arrange to meet and discuss their needs.”

Ailsa McCrae, Team Leader, and Debra Nelson, Advocate in Mid Argyll, held two information events in self management week. The first was held in Succoth Ward in the Mid Argyll hospital. A speaker from the TEC team in Argyll spoke about how “Technology Enabled Care” can help a wide range of people to self manage their conditions through a variety of different systems, including text services, alarms and sensors amongst others. This event was well received.
The second event was held in the MS Centre, Lochgilphead on the 4th of October. Around 20 people popped in to the MS Centre to find out more about Advocacy and how our advocates can help those with long term conditions to self manage.
A huge thanks to the MS Centre for allowing us to use their Centre, thanks also to MacPool, Lochgilphead and the Men’s Shed, Lochgilphead who came along to talk at the event and thanks to Heather Moore, of the TSI Argyll for being a part of our day.
