Learning the lessons of the Flynn Report – workshops for providers

Two workshops to 'learn the lessons' of the Flynn Report and Operation Jasmine are being held in North Wales in December.

The workshops, to held on December 9 in Llandudno and December 10 in Wrexham initially, aim to bring together those involved in the care of older people to hear Dr Flynn personally talk through her findings and the lessons the review identifies.

It is hoped local authority and University Health Board commissioners, contract compliance monitors, home owners, the police, local councillors, Assembly Members, carers’ associations, older people and other social care professionals will attend.

Places are limited so please book early! The deadline for booking is Monday November 30.

On the agenda for the 'Learning the lessons' workshops in North Wales

The morning session focuses principally on the findings of Dr Margaret Flynn's report for the Welsh Government and the afternoon session on the lessons to be learned from it.

Images will be shared during the events of people who were harmed and, separately, of pressure ulcers that some older people developed. Also, it is possible for extracts from a TV broadcast from 1995 may be viewed during the event – if a PA system and microphones are available

  • Two or more 'Justice for Jasmine' families will attend each event to give an account of their relatives' experiences and similarly.
  • Dr Margaret Flynn will summarise the key messages and lessons arising from her review.
  • A local speaker will outline some of the local, good news/ bad news headlines in terms of providing support to frail older people.
