We have been friends on Twitter for quite a while and I am very honored to be invited to speak 

The  first talk is with Easington Mental health services older people (MHSOP) which is a part of Tees Esk and Wear Valley (TEWV) NHS Foundation trust. Who are a community team Supporting with carer education / support groups from  as well as monthly memory cafés to get everyone together inc carers, patients, local police, council, local shops etc to build a community hub type network. 

The second visit is in Blackhall Colliery community centre with Dr Sidhu who is a GP and with   his  team works jointly with in building a memory pilot where people can be assessed and treated in their own surgery at Blackhall Colliery community centre Doing the   upmost to build a dementia friendly community Hub network.
