The training session on the new General Data Protection Regulations was well received. 15 organisations were represented by one or two delegates and everyone had plenty of opportunities to ask questions specific to their organisation, and how the GDPR will affect them.
The following links provide information on GDPR from the ICO website (Information Commissioner’s Office). Press CTRL + click to view.

End of Life DOS
As part of the End of Life Service redesign across Mid Nottinghamshire, TEAM will be providing and maintaining a Directory of Services for relevant third sector service providers for End of Life patients and their carers. The DOS will be available to all Health Care Professionals in the EOL pathway.
We will be contacting organisations delivering EOL services shortly to check on the accuracy of the data we have included, for example; contact details, opening times, group session times and services offered. However, if you deliver services and support to patients or carers who are End of Life, and would like to be included in the DOS please contact myself, Karen Howe on 01623 415966 or Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org
The Healthy Mansfield Commission has recently been set up to identify how best to support and improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Mansfield. It aims to consider the opportunities for improving access to high quality Health and Wellbeing through closer working between agencies across the health and social services and to deliver more appropriate, targeted health and wellbeing.
TEAM has been asked to be part of the Commission, along with a number of charities and statutory bodies representing health and social care, the third sector, County and District Councils.
The first meeting was held on the 19th April 2018. We will keep you posted of developments.
Social Prescribing Update
Unfortunately, TEAM was unsuccessful in our joint funding application with mid Notts CCG to the Health and Wellbeing Fund to resource a Social Prescribing programme across Mansfield, Ashfield, Newark and Sherwood. We are still hoping to secure funding from the CCG, and are currently working with them to consider scale, timelines and availability of resources. We will keep you all up to date as soon as we have any definitive news.
