The Final Key Features of the CCG- CCGUK London
May, 5 2020
Welcome to the final ‘Key Features of the CCG’. For the past six weeks I’ve been reminding members about the excellent points of access available on the website. Let’s have a quick rewind over the past six:-
For the last in the series I’ll be looking at CCGUK London. There are, in total 10 members on this page. This makes a ratio of two men and eight women.
The members cover themes such as:-
Health and Wellbeing
To help us fully comprehend their work within the CCGUK London framework I’m going to select one male and one female from the page and provide a brief summary about each member so we can ‘get to know them’ a little better.
Professor David Morris is a scholar in the field of mental health. He teaches the subject at UCLAN and is Director of the Centre for Citizenship and Community, a collaboration with the RSA and the Royal Society for Public Health.
2004 - 2009 - Director of the cross government National Social Inclusion Programme at the National Institute for Mental Health in England.
2009 - 2013 Visiting Academic Associate post Kings College, London.
In 2020 David confidently sits as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts with whom he is working on Connected Communities ;- a five year programme on social networks and community capital.
Molly Case combined her day job with her past time to win the hearts of the nation. Having learnt the ropes as a nurse she put pen to paper and created the poem ‘Nursing the Nation’.
It was the poem that brought her unprepared adulation. In April 2013 Molly performed her poem at the Royal College of Nursing and it achieved cult success, gaining over 350,000 views on You Tube in a matter of months.
She has appeared in the following media outlets :-
Molly was named in the Health Service Journal’s Inspirational Women list and the BBC’s 100 Women list.
Her debut collection of poetry, 'Underneath the Roses Where I Remembered Everything' was inspired by her journey to becoming a nurse.
As you can see the figures don’t add up. The CCG is encouraging more males to join the CCGUK London page. We may need you for future health and well being events or we may need your cultural sophistication to inspire the next great exhibition.
We urge you all to keep logged on to the CCG website to find new and relevant material that will give you a focus during these uncertain times.
