The recent Spines & Whines Talk held in Redbourn at the Christ Church was a great success with 75 people interested in learning more about Lower Back Pain – how to avoid or manage it. Organised by the Redbourn Health Centre’s Patient Link, Dr Paul Hart FRCA FFP MRCA Consultant in Pain Management and Sarah Cameron Chartered Physiotherapist (below right) gave interesting and informative lectures which were well received and stimulated several questions and conversations at the end of the evening.

To get the proceedings going the Chairman John Lavers (below right) introduced the Mayor of St Albans Maxine Crawley (above left) who has kindly supported the Patient Link with a Locality Grant of £500 from her County Councillors’ budget. The Chairman paid tribute to the Mayor for her tremendous support of the local community in her Mayoral year. The newly created Patient Link has the task of bringing together the Health Centre doctors and the patients in a better understanding of what patients need and what information they require to help manage their health issues or concerns. Attendees came away with a better understanding of the way the spine is constructed and what constitutes good back management in work and home situations. Dr Rosemary Ramsay who attended the event, expressed her gratitude on behalf of the Health Centre, for all the hard work put in by the Patient Link Committee organised by Secretary Pam Lavers.”
