Big Society local

I attended a meeting in Tooting yesterday evening about a local initiative to bring mental health care and counselling services out of the hospital and into the community. Places such as Springfield hospital can be  forbidding to those who suffer any kind of anxiety so in recent months the care has literally come into the community, into Mosques, Hindu Temples and Churches. I am  exploring the possibility that our New hall might become part of that expansion because it is light, friendly and un-institutional, and was designed to have spaces that could be used for counselling. The long term hope is that a whole range of health services will become available in community spaces at the local level to spare much of the hassle and stress associated with routine medical matters.I don’t  think any operations will be happening at St Barnabas soon.
