HSCP Day 2022 – Wednesday 27 April

The theme is Recognition, Reflection and Renewal.   

Recognition - We want to recognise the effort, above and beyond the call of duty, for service users/patients  as well as the sacrifices HSCP and all staff have made over the past two years.

Reflection -  This is an opportunity to reflect and remember the loss on so many levels during the pandemic. A chance to reflect on the changes to our lives and work and what we might propose to carry forward.

Renewal – A chance to recharge and take time for ourselves to refresh and recover and think about the future.

We encourage local events involving service users/patients and students together with HSCP. If you would like to share your plans/ideas for the day, via Twitter.  Please remember to use the hashtags #HSCPDeliver and #HSCPDay2022
