More resilience

Resilience Interest Group table discussion

Thanks to the progress our Resilience Interest Group has already made and how they want to take resilience forward in Southwark and Lambeth communities, funding has now been approved for three more meetings.

The three meetings will all be held at The Dragon Café. The first of which will be held on Tuesday 7 July, with dates for the other two meetings to follow.

The last meeting was held on 22 April. Zoë Reed, Resilience Interest Group Chair at Southwark and Lambeth Integrated Care and Director of Organisation and Community at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation, said: “It was another productive and vibrant meeting with very interesting discussions.”

The group discussed:

  • How they should take the resilience work forward
  • What should be considered in the Primary Care Navigators pilot in South Southwark, which is looking to base Age UK Southwark Safe and Independent Living (SAIL) navigators in GP surgeries
  • Thinking about what a Chronic Condition Hub might look like in Southwark and Lambeth, led by Jane Stopher from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Community.

Age UK Southwark and Lewisham and Age UK Lambeth also provided an update on their review of the Falls, Infection, Nutrition, Dementia and Simplified Discharge projects from a Voluntary and Community Sector perspective. The full report is expected to be published in June.

A summary of the meeting and presentation can be found in the ‘What is SLIC – Resilience’ section of the Documents section of the website.

Will Nicholson, Project Manager at Southwark and Lambeth Integrated Care, said: “We are making steady progress in defining resilience and making it real in Southwark and Lambeth.

“So it’s fantastic that these discussions can continue for three more meetings, especially in a warm, inviting and friendly environment like the Dragon Café.”
