As the school year nears its end, so does Glenside’s ‘Use your head, wear a helmet!’ free cycle helmet promotion. Supported by Spire FM, Hayball’s Cycles and Stonehenge Cycles, Glenside has given away a total of 150 cycle helmets to 16 Salisbury primary schools.
Glenside launched this campaign at the start of 2017, with the aim of reiterating the safe cycling message and worked with the organisers of the Bikeability Training course, managed by Wiltshire Council to donate the cycle helmets and take photos of the pupils involved.
This year’s Glenside conference entitled: “Enhancing rehabilitation: technical, surgical and peer group support for neurorehabilitation of brain or spinal injuries.” was aimed at all those in the healthcare sector, working with adults who are recovering from injury to the brain or spine, through trauma or disease.
The Glenside therapy team has recently launched the Affiliate programme which aims to strengthen communication between ward staff and the therapy team and facilitate the provision of 24/7 rehabilitation for service users, as well as offering the opportunity for continuous training development for care staff.
The Affiliate programme is open to Rehabilitation Assistants who align themselves to a therapy discipline, including psychology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech & language therapy.
The Affiliate programme was also designed to allow ward care staff to get a more thorough understanding of a therapy discipline, equipping them with the skills and confidence to be able to effectively implement therapeutic care plans and support other team members to do the same.
