The next public meeting of the Assembly of Governors will be held on Tuesday 13th July 2010 at 5.30pm at Delta House, Greets Green Road, West Bromwich, West Midlands, B70 9PL

The Trust gives notice that it will hold elections to the Assembly of Governors of the Sandwell Mental Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust.

The Trust was proud to celebrate the important Sikh festival of Vaisakhi on Friday 23rd April. Vaisakhi is a very important day for Sikhs and one of the most colourful events in the Sikh calendar. It traditionally coincides in Punjab with the first harvesting of the crops for the year and marks the founding of the Khalsa, the Sikh Brotherhood. Vaisakhi is a joyous occasion and time for celebrating across cultures.

Sandwell Primary Care Trust and Sandwell Council have published their strategy for the development of services for people with dementia.

The Trust welcomes this strategy as an important step forward in the provision of a comprehensive range of mental health services for the people of Sandwell.

It can be difficult, at the best of times, to find a place of refuge where we can get some peace. For people staying in a hospital environment it can be even harder. With this in mind Emma Louis, Head of Diversity and Spirituality, was delighted when, on the 31st March, she opened the Sanctuary Room at Hallam Street Hospital.

Emma Louis – our head of Diversity and Spirituality and an ordained priest – had a rather delightful task to perform on Tuesday 25th May. She’d been asked to bless the wedding of Debra and Peter, who had first met two years ago when they’d started using our service at Positive Choices Oldbury (our Positive Choices teams help people with mental health problems gain a sense of wellbeing in life).

As a healthcare organisation we want to celebrate and encourage the diversity that exists in Sandwell Mental Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust and within the community of Sandwell, as well highlighting any areas where people are treated unfairly or without the respect that they deserve.
