LAST week was a very busy week for me, starting with a promotion to Minister of State for Employment on Monday!
On Friday night I attended a wonderful evening at Wirral Local Medical Committee (LMC) annual dinner with GPs, pharmacists, dentists and the chief executive of Wirral University Teaching Hospital, David Allison.
LMCs are local representative committees of NHS GPs and represent their interests in their localities to the NHS health authorities.
They interact and work with and through the General Practitioners Committee as well as other branches of practice committees and local specialist medical committees in various ways, including conferences.
On Saturday, in between campaigning with the teams for the upcoming Upton By-Election, I went along to Tesco in Heswall to do some bag packing with pupils and staff from Calday Grange Grammar School to help them raise funds for their Refilwe community project, something they have been doing since nine Calday students first visited the project in 2006.
Refilwe, not far from Johannesburg, is a Christian charitable organisation which consists of a school, a daycare centre, a medical clinic, and a place for children to live and to play.
Over 60 children living at Refilwe which seeks to provide a loving and stable environment where orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children can become part of a family.
So well done to the LMC for the work they do here, and to Calday Grange Grammar School for their efforts to support such a great cause in the southern hemisphere.
