I hope this finds you well. Here is information about a couple of upcoming events we wanted to share with you. Please circulate the information to other groups or individuals who you think it may be of interest to.
Talking about Talking Therapies
Following a review in 2013 it was found that there was not equal access to talking therapies for all Southwark residents. As a result the CCG are in the process of evolving a service specification for future talking therapies in Southwark and are seeking the views of local residents to inform its development. Further background details about why we are doing this and what patients have previously told us can be found on the Get Involved pages of the CCG website page.
To explore this with local people we are having an engagement event on 8 April to discuss the options. You can book for the engagement event online directly and the full details can be seen on the flyer which is also attached to this email. If you are unable to attend this event but still want to contribute you can complete the online survey as well.
Training for Patients who want to have a say in shaping local health services
There are still a couple of spaces available for the next patient training session that we are delivering on 26 March. You can book a place for this online or by contacting the Membership and Engagement team on 020 7525 7888. This session will be helping participants to develop ‘Skills for Successful meetings’ and is being delivered in conjunction with the Consultation Institute. More details can be found on our website.

The best possible health outcomes for Southwark people
Dear Friends and Well Wishers
You are warmly invited to the Private View of:
Lilies of the Sea:
a print retrospective
Susan Spencer hayter
A Solo Exhibition
Private View: Wednesday 5th March
308-312 Brixton Road
Tel: 020 3228 7050
Duration: until 4th April 2014
Open 09.30 – 16.30 (please ring first)
We have recently celebrated two years of exhibitions at SHARP Team, and this solo exhibition heralds the start of the third year. I have known Susan for twenty years and during this time we have worked together professionally, both as artists and art educators. We also share a common bond, of being carers for loved ones. I am really happy to show Susan’s work here, and hope it will encourage carers, who are also artists, to exhibit here in the future.
Susan is a local Lambeth artist, based at Studio Voltaire. Having graduated, first as a biologist, and secondly, in fine art Painting at Wimbledon School of Art, in 2006, she also makes prints, as an integral part of her practice, at Kensington & Chelsea College.
This work has arisen, following research at the Natural History Museum, into sea lilies or ‘crinoids’, a group of marine organisms with a plant like structure, inhabiting oceans worldwide for over 500 million years.
The prints refer to both living and fossilised crinoid forms and the historical use of this medium in making scientific records, alluding to the boundaries between art and science. Exploring a variety of techniques, including etching, drypoint, lino and collagraph processes, used as a means of expression, this takes a more romantic path in a series of monoprints, alluding to the environmental fragility of these creatures. Installation work takes the form of inverse plaster relief casts, based on close observations of fossilised sea lily forms.
As a new venture, we are introducing a two hour artist’s talk, where artists share their story and discuss their practice. The first talk will take place on Monday 24th March, 1-3pm. ( free, all welcome, refreshments served)
I want to thank Susan and hope you will come and see this exhibition/installation, coinciding with a selection of prints going to the Natural History Museum’s archive collection.
