Today I briefly attended the Learning Disability Partnership Board meeting co-chaired by Cllr Jim Mckenna. This group of people including people who have learning disabilities represent all those who have learning disabilities, those who support them and service providers in Cornwall.
I visited Helston Community Hospital and met with Nick Buckland OBE who is the Chairman of Peninsula Community Health (the organisation that runs the community hospital). Together we toured the hospital and met many of the nursing staff there.
I visited the St Ives National Coastwatch Institution Station and met the Station Manager and those on duty with Mayor Linda Taylor. 45 people keep a look out from here for everything that moves on the sea and coast from 7am through to 7pm every day.
