News From Streatham PCN's collaborative Latin Community Health and Wellbeing Fair!
On Saturday 7th of October, Streatham PCN's organized their first Health and wellbeing fair for the Spanish and Portuguese community.
During this event patients were able to have their BP checked, have discussions about Chronic pain, be tested for Changas disease, Mental health and meet the different support organisations available to them.
In the meantime before the next fair, we will carry on working with this community on the Latin Connection what's app group that was created in February 2023.
This WhatsApp group has grown to over 800 patients where they can find subgroups for language exchange, employment, entrepreneur, Spanish and Portuguese mums and walks. Patients have said that they were very happy that this event was organised for the community and it made them feel included as 20% of Lambeth population is Latin Americans.
