Highlights of the year so far

Feb 2019: VIP opening and cabaret - Camden and Islington’s vibrant LGBT+ community was out in force for the 10th anniversary celebration of one of the UK’s most colourful art exhibitions. The theme of this year’s milestone ‘Loudest Whispers’ art exhibition, hosted by C&I at St Pancras Hospital, is ‘Let Art be the Food of Love’. Camden and Islington’s Mayors was the VIP guests at the event, which is part of the nationwide LGBT+ History Month. This year the month focused on the theme 'Peace, Activism and Reconciliation'. Run by the charity The Arts Project, the Loudest Whispers exhibition has exploded in popularity since its launch a decade ago, and is now a firm fixture on the north London arts calendar, attracting huge crowds from across the capital.

March 2019: The award reflects Professor Killaspy’s exceptional reputation in leading national and international programmes of research that focus on the assessment of quality of care for people with complex mental health problems, and the evaluation of complex interventions.  In announcing the award, the Association  paid tribute to Professor Killaspy’s huge contribution to better mental health care in Europe.

March 2019: Women were invited from 2pm to share poetry, stories or anything that spoke to their community as part of International Women’s Day at Drayton Park Women’s Crisis House on Friday 8 March. This was followed by a drama workshop by ‘Women Rise’.

March 2019: Teenagers from Islington excluded from mainstream school or unable to attend due to sickness have visited our Trust to learn at first hand about “unexpected” careers in the NHS. Around twenty teenagers from a borough pupil referral unit visited our St Pancras site in two separate hour-long sessions for a fun exercise interviewing Trust colleagues representing a range of non-clinical skills and disciplines within the NHS.  The aim of the sessions – entitled “Unexpected Careers in the NHS” - was to show teenagers the variety of career paths available within the NHS aside from being a doctor or a nurse. The roles showcased at the event represented Human Resources, Information Technology, Quality Improvement, and Facilities Management.
