On Tuesday, Community Links Bromley delivered a highly successful Health Summit attended by local groups, commissioners from the PCT and LBB, GPs, practice managers and nurses.
A full report is in preparation and will be sent out shortly. In the meantime, here are some of the highlights:
- Everyone felt that they had learnt more about other organisations and how they work and how they might work together
- There will be further summit in six months
- A request was made for Community Links to demonstrate CLB’s BiG Community Directory at the Local Medical Committee; Dr Parson thought all GPs should have it set as their homepage.
- The Health & Wellbeing Board and BSU would discuss with Community Links Bromley how to make input into the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (and to other plans) more effective, and CLB will continue its work developing organisations’ commissioning readiness.
Launched on 27th May, BiG has already made it up to the fourth most visited page on the CLB website, with 280 visitors this month.back to top
Local residents involved with the Mottingham Movers & Groovers enjoyed a lunch with Bromley & Chislehurst MP Bob Neill and Jean Levy, Chair of Community Links Bromley, on the 17th June.
Discussions included the exciting proposals for a Community Market in Mottingham and the ‘Fix and Reuse’ project.
Bob Neill said ‘Mottingham Movers & Groovers is a fantastic resource for local residents to find out what’s going on and get involved with ideas for improving Mottingham. I will certainly be supporting it as much as I can.’

On the 17th of June, Community Links Bromley hosted an event for Bromley Fire Service at Community House to consult on future plans for Orpington Fire Station.
As part of a London wide programme, Orpington Fire Station has been selected for rebuilding. The new plans will incorporate a community building.
In order to ascertain what the community would want from this space, representatives were invited to attend the consultation to find out more about the project and to share their views.
Bromley Fire Service was delighted with the turnout and the level of participation from the 30-strong group during both the presentations and the workshops.
London Fire Service have held a number of these events across London and said “It was one of the best organised events we have held.” LFS will keep CLB and participants informed of progress over the next two years. Thanks to everyone who attended the event. Click here to view some of the photos taken on the day .back to top

The Council have launched My Life, a new adult social care website that people can find on the homepage of the Council’s website. It’s where people can get lots of information, advice and guidance at the click of a mouse. From help around the home to personal care services, from dealing with money worries to keeping mobile, My Life has been designed to help people work out what they need and then show them the range of options and services that can help meet those needs as well as giving guidance so they can choose the right service or support for them.
Said Robert Evans, Executive Councillor for Adult and Social Care, “More and more of us use new technology to manage our lives. We have launched ‘My Life’ so everyone, whether they are Council funded or not, can have the right information at their fingertips about what’s out there to keep them as independent as possible and living in their own home in the community when they need care and support. There’s a feedback facility on ‘My Life’ and I look forward to hearing your comments and views, as we will be using what you tell us to continue to shape and develop the site.”back to top
