25th April 2016 Meeting with Cheshire Downs

What a fantastic meeting we had today.  Sarah from Cheshire Down Syndrome came to the office at the Welcome Center to discuss Maternity Liasion and how we could work together to encourage hospital staff to 'tell it right' when a diagnosis of their child could have a chance of Down Syndrome.  Cheshire Down Syndrome already do a fantastic job training staff in numerous hospitals including Leighton, Crewe and Macclesfield.  Cheshire is of course a large area to cover, the Charity has two paid staff and the rest of the work is done by the dedicated volunteers.  It makes sense that we work together to educate and inform hospital staff, it appears to me to be sensible that it becomes part of their training before they even enter a hospital......there is lots of work to be done.....wish us luck!!!  Sarah xx
