Afternoon at the Royal Garden Party

04 July 2018

On 5 June, Norma Dudley (below, left) and I had the privilege of representing the CPHVA as guests at the Royal Garden Party.

We had an enjoyable afternoon mingling in the gardens of Buckingham Palace, with many interesting conversations about maternal and child health.

One young woman told us about her past experience of PND that was identified by her family, not professionals – showing the importance of maintaining and developing resources, training, and dedicated time in the workplace for professional CPs to follow up with new parents.

Asha Day is vice chair of the CPHVA Executive, and Norma Dudley is a former chair of London and Eastern region.
