Right Arrow Press Release - Spring Into Health - PR/03/0405
16 April 2004 at 11:26
Cancer nurses from a whole range of specialities across Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust have joined together to bring residents two unique health promotion/prevention events. The two “Spring into Health” road-show events in April will bring together a wealth of advice from the health experts in cancer care.

The first event is on Friday 23 April at the Civic Hall, Southport Road, Ormskirk between 10am and 3pm. The second is on Monday 26 April at Christ Church CE Church, Lord Street, Southport, again between 10am and 3pm.

At each event will be an array of display stands showcasing information on a wide variety of specialities including breast, upper and lower GI, dermatology, gynaecology, haematology, lung, lymphoedema, urology, palliative care and dietetics. Nursing professionals with knowledge and experience will be on hand to give advice and carry out equipment demonstrations.

The events have been jointly organised by Joan Aughton, the Trust’s Lead Cancer Nurse, and colleagues from the West Lancashire and Southport and Formby Primary Care Trusts. Joan said, “The two events are a great way to show the range of services and expertise we have to offer the community. We have an excellent cancer team who want to share their wealth of knowledge and experience with patients and anyone else who is interested in our work. It is fantastic to be involved with a group of nurses who are so committed to their work and, without their dedication to improving patient advice, these events would not have been possible. They should be thanked for their hard work in organising what we hope will be two very successful events.”
