Thank you to all parents, carers and professionals who supported our event on 18th September 2017.  It was a great opportunity for our families to meeting some of the professionals who are there to support them and their child.  We had representatives from: Gateshead Sendias Service, Community Nursing, School Nursing, Physiotherapy, Oral Health, Dietician, Speech and Language, Bowel and Bladder, Core Assets, Contact (previously Contact A Family), the registered nurse for special schools and the Low Incident Needs Team (visual and hearing impairment).
